Reports are that the festival was a very successful event – very friendly, well organised, lots of people having a great time. St Mary’s Church was pretty full from 3pm ’til 11pm on both days, and an estimated thousand+ people passed through the church. Some were really complimentary – loved the building, appreciated the fact that it was open enough to hold a community event of this type. “Wow, this is just awesome” being one favourite comment. This kind of appreciation makes it worthwhile staying into the small hours to clear and lock up!
