The cray festival was unbelievably poor. To call it a festival is a joke.

The Hall Place Farmers market was VERY poor, about 9 stalls, and I would only consider two could be deemed " farmer Market stall" and they sold bread, the other sold home made jams and chutney. Other stalls sold 1) foreign cheese,, 2) Olives, 3) various teas, 4) Football club road signs, 5)fruit and veg, 6) curry chutney and samosa's.
