Winter Wonderland 2016

Stop Press…

Possibly the best ever Christmas event we have been involved in and preparations for 2017 are already in the pipeline.

Thankfully the weather was kind to us and the event was well supported by locals and visitors from further afield. They made the event a success by supporting the traders inside and outside the Pannier Market. The local hostelries and shops were also doing a roaring trade, all contributing and helping to making the heart of South Molton beat a little louder.

The BBC comes to town…

The arrival of BBC TV into South Molton showed the rest of the South West what South Molton has to offer. Their coverage of the whole town was a shot in the arm for South Molton’s businesses and traders .

SMBA would like to thank everyone who supported and attended The  2016 Winter Wonderland event and we will hopefully see you all again in December 2017!
