A COUNTY food and flying festival has a new partner which is set to help take the event to new heights.
The Shobdon Food and Flying Festival has teamed up with Bestparks country holiday parks in a sponsorship deal it’s hoped will help the event go from strength to strength.
Bestparks operates six five-star holiday homes and touring parks in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Powys and Mid-Wales.
One of the parks, Pearl Lake, is situated less than half a mile from where the Food and Flying Festival is held.
Co-founder of the Food Festival, Matt Teale, said: “As well as supporting local producers and raising money for charity our main ethos is to attract more visitors to our corner of Herefordshire. It’s great to get a local business like Bestparks on board sharing the same vision and passion for the county.”
Glenn Jones, owner of Bestparks’ Pearl Lake, said the company is ‘thrilled’ to be supporting the festival’s tenth anniversary celebrations.
Festival organisers have also confirmed the supported charities this year.
As in 2013, proceeds will be split between Herefordshire Aero Club and the Food Festival which are again supporting Shobdon Church, The Little Princess Trust and Megan Baker House.
Lee Gough, chief executive of MBH, and Monica Glass, a charity manager of the Little Princess Trust, said both of the charities were delighted with the support from the festival.
The festival takes place over June 28 and 29. Entry is £6 per person, with free admission for those under 11.
