Past Meetings & Events
The first Reepham Food Festival is being held on May 27/28 2017.
The market square will be closed for events, stalls, cookery demonstrations and lots of places to eat and drink - you can see the latest developments at www.reephamfoodfestival.org.uk . It is hoped to see people from Reepham and beyond enjoying themselves on a free family day out. Many organisations and people have joined in to help put Reepham on the map, but it takes a lot of people to put on a festival and a few more volunteers are wanted for the weekend. There is a promise of fun and community involvement - and a badge - but sadly no other renumeration.
The easiest way to volunteer is through the Reepham Food Festival website - follow the short link. bit.ly/rff17vol. Just leave a note of your email and/or phone, say when you are available and the organisers will get back to you.
