Trophy Blog #95 ~ Local business owners and shop keepers in the area are always thinking of ways of attracting shoppers and visitorsinto the town. Once new visitors see what is on offer, they could be tempted to leave the near by busy cities and stay longer in Selby. One event happening soon is the Selby Food & Wine Festival due to take place on the 12th July. Lots of local suppliers, caterers and producers are working together to create a bigger and improved attraction for us to attend. This is the third year it has taken place and this time is on a much bigger scale. You may have attended the first two held indoors at Selby Town Hall. Richard Sharp of Mollie Sharp’s Cheese & Deli on Finkle street is the mastermind behind the event along with Tony from Rooms4all and Richard from Heaven & Home. This year a lot of red tape and paperwork has been filled in to make it even better. Selby community groups have pulled out all the stops to move it outdoors so more people can enjoy what is on offer. Richard says that with the cooperation of Selby Town Council and other sponsors, it has been possible to expand the event into the town centre itself. Lots of stalls and food tasting events are taking place outside on the market place outside the Abbey and expanding along Finkle street itself. This will be a great day out with something for everyone, so why not go and try something different, get tasting something new as it may become your new favourite food! Check out their website http://www.selbyfoodfestival.co.uk/ or call into mollies cheese shop for more details.
