"We are extremely proud of the event this year and have engaged with people of all ages.

"The feedback so far has been amazing.

"Thank you to all that came to support the event and our local businesses."

Senior BID ambassador Lee Rowark added: "It was great to see so many local businesses utilising the increased footfall in town to their benefit by coming outside to promote their business with samples of food and drink from Bill's Restaurant and free cartons of juice from A Plan Insurance."
