South Molton FOOD FEST- Sunday 29 March 2015 #ndevon #devon

South Molton Food Fest – Sunday 29 March 2015 in  the Pannier Market

south_molton_food_fest_flyer_final_draftOn Sunday 29 March, the South Molton Business Association (SMBA) will be hosting the town’s first Food Fest, in The Pannier Market.

 The event will use the successful North Devon Food Fest as a model.  So expect loads of food and drink stalls, showcasing both fresh produce as well as many different delicious cooked foods, be that hog roasts, curries, or traditional fayre such as breads, pies and pastries.  As well as a plethora of savouries the aim is to fill the market with stalls selling mouth watering cakes, biscuits, and fruit filled jams and spicy chutneys.  And as the area is fortunate to have cider and fruit juice producers, there will be the opportunity to try a real Devon tipple and locally produced ales.

SMBA is a non profit making organisation, but any funds raised by the Food Fest, as with all the other events we run, will be ploughed back into the local community.


To book and secure your stall for Sunday 29 March South Molton Food, please complete the attached form.  Either post the form enclosing a cheque payable to “South Molton Business Association” or email the form and pay by BACS with the reference “Food fest”.  Full details on timings etc will be sent with receipts.

Prices for one day in the pannier market are inclusive of table hire:

10′ frontage  =  £30.00                    20′ frontage  =  £60.00                          Electricity = £5.00

#WordPress – Is there another #recession around the corner in the UK?

There is a whiff in the air that smells like another economic slow down

Money is getting tight again, with employees feeling the pinch and being undervalued by their employers. Spare cash has been soaked up by day to day expenses – the cost of living is getting higher.

You are going to go bust…

If you are complacent about your companies health you need to take a reality pill. The market out there is getting tougher and tougher and the smart guys are upping their game

Small businesses need to increase their web presence effectively and cheaply. There are a lot of free, and exceptional efficient tools out there and some are more powerful (getting your products into search engines) than expensive branded software and tools.

Smarter businesses outsource their web content generation to companies who know how to extract the biggest impact with the least amount of words.

There is no point in leaving your business web site with static content. Your website is not there to be admired like a still life painting or photograph, it has to be constantly changing or your visitors will get bored and all your clients will go elsewhere.

An out of date blog or website sends out the wrong signals to your clients, blogs that have more frequent and regular posting schedules tend to develop an audience and client base quicker.
