Many thanks to all who contributed to the success of last weekend’s Ledbury Big Breakfast celebrating a healthy start to the day and Ledbury and district’s riches in local food.
Nineteen local food businesses – Hotels, cafes, pubs and delis – provided the widest range of breakfasts of all sizes from the lightest to the “super heaviest” for those who chose to “eat out”. Local butchers, delis and the Country Market had local favourites for those who fancied a breakfast at home.
There were Full English Breakfasts of all sizes for the cognoscenti, but also lots of other delights including a Breakfast Nest, a twist on Eggs Benedict, breakfast salmon, breakfast baps with all kinds of filling, a loaded breakfast rosti and a breakfast waffle. Increasingly there more vegetarian and vegan options on the menus this year.
On Friday, “Breakfast Bells” pealed from the Church to mark the opening of the Big Breakfast weekend.
The High Sheriff of Herefordshire Jo Hilditch, The Chair of Herefordshire Council Cllr Sebastian Bowen, Deputy Mayor Phillip Howells, Town Clerk Angela Price and members of Ledbury Food Group celebrated the event with breakfast at the Market House, followed by visits to some of the businesses taking part. They also visited the Ukrainian Aid centre in the Market House and the new premises of Ledbury Food Bank.
On Saturday, the busiest day, local MP Sir Bill Wiggin toured businesses in Ledbury to thank them for taking part and meeting most of our “first-timers”.
On Sunday there was more choice this year for those who fancied a special Sunday breakfast.
We hope that next year we can run the event at the end of January its
Please let us have your feedback and suggestions for next year.
Again many thanks!
