Over recent years, GPG’s Local Food Festival has become a popular fixture on the Penarth calendar, which made it a particular disappointment that the 2018 event had to be cancelled following 24 hours of heavy rain and winds that made the site unsafe. The Kymin – the usual venue – is now no longer under the control of Penarth Town Council. A review of possible arrangements has so far not confirmed a viable alternative site – and the Management Committee has decided with regret that the Food Festival will not run in 2019.
October’s Apple day made a successful return in 2018, and will again become a fixture in the calendar. Blessed by good weather and a healthy attendance, the event works especially well as a celebration of the local and the seasonal, with stalls offering a range of local produce alongside freshly pressed juice made from local apples.
