It is with a tinge of regret that Milford on Sea Food Week will not be taking place in April 2018.
However, Food Week is not dead, it is just resting!
To explain, planning for Food Week starts around 6 months in advance and takes up around 3 full days a week to put everything in place.
For a number of years I had been 'semi-retired', which provided the time to enjoy putting together this fun event.
Last year my chief executive moved on to pastures new, so I stepped back into my company on a temporary basis.
That temporary basis has now become full-time again, as the company is growing in all areas; from our industry business management software to our online sourcing subscription services. Added to this we have created two new major industry events to take place this September and then in February 2018, plus we are building an exciting new industry data sharing product for launch early in the new year.
The village businesses, clubs and residents have all been so supportive over the years, I thank you all for that, and I am sorry to disappoint anyone. But as you may imagine it is difficult to devote the necessary time right now.
Food Week will be back, just don't know when at the moment!
