Thanks to everyone who took part in or visited this popular event which reminds us of our local food heritage and every year surprises us with the ingenuity of our local food providers.
Even the sun shone for this year’s Ledbury Big Breakfast held on Friday 31st January, Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February 2020 at cafes, pubs, hotels, butchers and delis in and around Ledbury.
Most businesses reported good trade through the weekend with breakfasts from the lightest to the most traditional in demand, from bacon, eggs and trimmings through devilled kidneys to avocado on local sourdough, with many different options in between. Saturday was particularly busy – thanks to everyone who booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
Ledbury’s weekly Country Market reported good business for their breakfasts on the Friday. The weather was so good that we even had “al fresco” breakfasters enjoying the sun in Church Lane.
The Mayor of Ledbury Councillor Phillip Howells visited most places taking part and said, ”Ledbury and district’s 3-day Big Breakfast fest is all that is good about local food. The town was buzzing with happy customers and traders were delighted – a fabulous example of why the town is so loved by us who live here and those from many miles around.”
Caroline Handley of The Organic Café thanks all those who came to the special charity middle-east themed breakfasts on Saturday at the Organic Café which raised £570 to help displaced people and those needing medical help in the Middle East.
