The judges made the following comments when announcing the award presented by Andrew Percy MP, Minister for markets

“The winner of this category links Markets, local food and craft promotion,, a fun fair and evening programme of entertainment crammed into its traditional high street. It full involves its local community, is provided on a very limited budget and has grown to become an event of county wide significance. It is the highlight of the local winter calendar; it unites the community, provides a recipe for success that many can learn from and delivers an excellent event through a very strong partnership”
