Debbie Squires, organiser, said: “It was a busy day but it was absolutely brilliant, everyone worked really well together.”

The event was dreamt up to attract people from other areas into the town to see what it has to offer.

The Oompah Band performed on the precinct before making their way into Bistro 42 where they got everyone up and dancing.

Andrew Daniel of Bistro 42, said: “We all worked well and had an even greater time doing it, was all teamwork.”
