Easter Trail: the trail has now finished. We had a great number of people taking part with visitors coming into town from places like Bude and Plymouth specifically to participate. The feedback has been really good:
We really enjoyed the easter egg trail around Tavistock. We explored shops that we had never been in to before and have every intention of visiting Tavistock again.
We will be back to this lovely place in the summer. Thank you.
Work has now started on the summer trails which we are doing in collaboration with the Community Gardeners. They look set to be really exciting and different, which will hope will draw in good numbers.
We are hoping that we can get a number of prizes through donation or sponsorship from local businesses. Please contact us if you would like to help and feature on trail publicity.
Record Breaking Cream Tea: Janna has held a couple of meetings with the working group and Fire Service. It is now looking unlikely that the town’s record-breaking attempt will take place, as hoped, in June. Guinness World Records have been slow to confirm whether our intentions will fulfil their criteria, which has slowed planning down. As soon as we have further information this will be communicated.
Tavistock Carnival: Looking ahead to Carnival we are still looking for businesses who would like to get involved in the bigger Carnival Festival Day. The idea is to try and make the event as much about the town centre as the parade itself. By putting on a variety of arts, music, entertainment and individual attractions around the town we hope to increase visitors into Tavistock for the day and evening, rather than just for the parade itself.
We are asking you to put on something that is relevant to your business – such as a special menu, a demonstration of your trade (flower arranging, nail art, drink or food tasting etc) or a small exhibition of your craft – in your own premises to create a really unique town centre festival.
Please help us supercharge the Carnival and make it work for you!
