Steam on the Levels - Conclusion

Well what a weekend! Thursday and Friday saw a huge amount of effort from our volunteers to prepare. Roping off in the adjacent field, putting up marquees, setting out tables, cutting grass etc. By the end of play Friday the field was still looking rather empty! A bit of doubt began to creep in as to whether everything was going to turn up but come opening time Saturday morning the exhibitors field was packed, the boiler was lit and all the volunteers were poised ready for the first visitors. The rest of course was a blur as the weekend shot by without any major hiccups. All areas of the volunteer run refreshments, teas, coffees, cake, hot food and bar had a huge throughput and by far exceeded last years takings all thanks to a better position and the super efforts of those running them.

Thanks to all the volunteers, our museum neighbours who provide the field, our other neighbour who helped provide huge numbers of home baked cakes, and the exhibitors who came along and supported the event. Just under 500 people passed through the entrance with a whole load of exhibitors as well!

So now to organising Steam on the Levels 2014! Hope to see you next year!
