Last weekend, Dan was delighted to visit the Framlingham Country Show andit was a particular pleasure for him to meet with young people from Suffolk involved in the ‘Young Entrepreneurs’ initiative, which supports young business-minded people by enabling them to exhibit and promote their products at the show. From the weekend’s evidence, there is clearly no shortage of talent in Suffolk and Dan enjoyed learning more about what our budding young entrepreneurs have been making and selling.
The Framlingham Country Show, which runs in tandem with the Suffolk Food and Drink Festival, celebrates the very best of Suffolk and the thousands of people who visited the historic market town again this year were treated to a range of activities and events, from falconry displays to woodcraft demonstrations. A wealth of locally sourced food and drink from Suffolk’s farmers and food producers was also available to buy.
Dan would like to thank organisers Paula and Guy Edmundson from the Suffolk company Classic Festivals and Events, who always put on a great show, along with all of the sponsors and residents who showed their support for this year’s event. He very much looks forward to visiting again next year.
