The event, run by the South Molton Business Association has received lots of compliments and endorsements from traders and visitors alike. Here is one email below:


I’m just passing on a message from my mum and her friends who took part in the Winter Wonderland on Friday in a craft stall. She wanted to say how pleased she was with the event and that she will definitely be booking for next year. Is it possible to book these now?

Merry Christmas!
