Don't stall-make your harbourfest pitch now!

STALL pitches at the Wick Diamond Jubilee HarbourFest summer, are now available for reservation.
The HarbourFest Committee are keen to encourage community groups, charities and local organisations to take advantage of this widely supported, community, event which will be held June 16.
The Harbourfest weekend in 2009 attracted over thirty community groups who raised over 20,000 selling a wide range of local products, arts and crafts, and food. Local baking, freshly baked scones and pancakes proved very popular, and local delicacies such as kippers met a keen demand throughout the day.
Stall pitches are available on a first come-first served basis; in the case of over-demand, preference will be given to groups offering unusual or innovative goods and products. There is a nominal charge for the pitches, which will be arranged along the harbour-front, as previously.
Liz Richard-Jones, HarbourFest Stall co-ordinator said: “We expect demand for pitches to exceed that of the last event, and although the layout this year has been altered to provide additional pitches. I urge any business, group or charity to make early application to ensure a place at the HarbourFest.”
Pitch application forms can be obtained from Liz Richard-Jones (01955 603821 or harbourfest@btopenworld.com) or a copy can be downloaded from the website http://www.wickharbour.co.uk/harbourfest for completion and return to the HarbourFest organisers at the address shown on the forms
The market stalls at the 2009 HarbourFest proved a popular attraction for all age-groups.
