 GATE2PLATE POSTPONED 

After taking advice from the Met Office and the emergency services, EDDC have decided, with heavy hearts, to postpone the Honiton Gate to Plate event this coming Saturday 10 August.

The event was due to be held along the High Street in the town with around 50 food, drink and craft producers setting up gazebos and tents to cover their stalls from early Saturday morning. However, the forecast for Friday night and Saturday morning suggests that there will be wind gusts of up to 45mph to 50mph with a mean wind speed of between 20mph to 25mph. The wind gusts are expected to continue throughout Saturday and ease away later in the afternoon.

The primary concern is the safety of the public and our producers. The emergency services are also alerting people to the forecast for heavy rain on Friday, coupled with the high winds on Friday and Saturday which could lead to traffic disruption on the roads. No-one would want any visitors to put themselves at risk and be caught up in this.

The good news is, EDDC are contacting producers to rearrange the event to a future date and everyone is spreading the word about the postponement though social media and via local media outlets. We would be grateful if you could share this message with those people you know who were due to attend. We hope to be able to announce the date when we can hold this year’s event over the next few days . . . so please, watch this space!
