Ulverston's first Super Saturday Market

Was a big success today despite a few drops of rain (well to be honest , quite a few).
End of a successful weatherfilled day

It's Ulverston's Charter Week Saturday and the town a buzzing with activity

 In fact the rain seemed to make it even more enjoyable, such is the 'Can-do' attitude of the local people who succeeded in laughing the wet away with their super positive funloving spirit led by our hard working and encouraging Mayor who had done much of the behind the scenes organisation. Bringing together such a wide group of creative people that made the event so successful.

The town was full of music in the market square with band after band, young and old, ferocious dressed-up drummers and dancing musicians from 11 am till 3pm. The square, full of a wide variety of stalls from the usual veg and David's Garden Plants, to crafts and brilliantly skilled face (and hand) painting for the children and fashion conscious young women.

Meanwhile in the Coro (our main hall) undercover, activities from cookery demonstration, a new multiskilled chess tournament in the hushed 'Supper Room' to a packed out traditional quality Beer Festival for the knowledgeable in the main hall down stairs.

Yes the town turned out to get involved; with visitors drawn like bees from the outlying areas of Barrow, Windermere and Grange over Sands.

And here are some Youtube videos to prove it:
