Lights were switched on this year by Bill Holden who has been a longstanding member of Bromyard Chamber of Commerce, but more importantly has probably been responsible for creating more jobs in the area than anyone else (and still owns a very successful industrial estate at Bishops Frome).
Before Bill threw the switch, BBC Hereford and Worcester’s own Toni McDonald will present prizes to the winners of the Bromyard Chamber of Commerce annual Shop Window Competition.
Traders decorated their windows for the event, which yearly attracts a crowd of several thousand. We were delighted to have Bromyard Mayor, Fred Clark, and his Mayoress to judge the window displays which this year numbered 54 entrants..
From 11.00 to 16.00 and from 18.00 to 19.30 there was a Christmas Arts Fair in The Chapel on Sherford Street – details here.
