A scientific briefing before entering the dome!
Published on: 24 Aug 2015
The Sun Dome, presented by Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, is a fascinating and educational activity for youngsters aged 5+. The Sun Dome is a giant inflatable dome that uses projections, images and videos to explore the workings of the Sun, how it continues to burn and how the energy of the sun has inspired new research!  There has been a wonderful response from families for the first two workshops. The final workshop will take place this week 26 August 2015, with sessions running at 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm. There are spaces available to book on a first come first served basis; contact the... more

New china stall at the Monday Market
Published on: 20 Jul 2015
There have been some changes at the Monday Market. Just a few weeks ago we were pleased to announce the arrival of the fresh fish van, which has now become a regular fixture, bringing freshly caught fish and seafood picked up in Grimsby that same morning. Following this we now have two more new stalls which started trading today bringing a splash of colour to the market. There's a new china stall with delightful mugs, teapots and jugs in attractive designs including butterflies and ladybirds and also a lovely stall with pinnies, cushions and other stitched household textiles. Both of them are... more

The entrance to the Town Council Offices in Roysse Court
Published on: 10 Jul 2015
The new flower baskets and central flower bed  in Roysse Court are now established and make a bright and welcoming view as visitors walk up in to town from the riverbank area. Outdoor team staff have been kept busy watering these and the many other displays around the town during the hot weather. The court has bench seating, in welcome shade for most of the morning, for the public to rest and enjoy the pink, white and purple displays and take in the view across the Market Place.

Crafts Market tomorrow
Published on: 12 Jun 2015
Alongside some of the well-loved stalls presented by the locality's best craftworkers and artisans, tomorrow's Craft Market will also have a mini-exhibition of patchwork, quilting and weaving to encourage people to "have a go" themselves. "Crafts are lovely to buy, particularly when beautifully designed and made by a local artist or artisan, but you appreciate them even more if you've had a go at doing them yourself." says one stallholder. "The quilts and textiles are a personal collection of work by three generations of one family; none of them are experts or full-time craftworkers and it... more

Music in the Park wristbands all gone now
Published on: 01 Jun 2015
We have reached our maximum numbers for the Music in the Park event now and therefore wristbands can no longer be obtained from the Town Council for this year's event. Since they became available on March 16th council staff and councillors have made the wristbands available on most Saturdays in the Market Place as well as their normal availability from the Guildhall all week.  There is still plenty of opportunity to have a great day with four hours of free events in the Park between 11am and  3pm. For this part of the day you don't need a wristband - Fun in the Park is a free, walk-in event... more

The Local Excellence Market will be filling the Market Place with great crafts, locally grown produce and scrumptious food - don't get me started on the heaven that is Jane's Kitchen Pies followed by Break 4 Cake cheesecake - and that's just breakfast! As always washed down with great coffee from one of the excellent coffee shops surrounding the Market Place - we are lucky to have Java& Co, Added Ingredients and Throwing Buns as independent businesses within twenty paces of the Market Place. Use them tomorrow to fortify your browsing around the superb range of stalls.
