When organisers – birth and parenting experts, Clare Coningsby, Emma Hogg, Sammy Lewis and Jane Wallington – got together in August of last year, they never expected a town hall full of exhibitors and more than 400 visitors from as far as Stevenage.

There were 33 stalls showcasing products and services of local businesses and organisations – from hand and foot castings, to 4D scans.

Jane Wallington said: “The whole day was buzzing. We had a continuous flow of positive comments from both the visitors and exhibitors.

“Our focus was very much on the families, and having young families ourselves, we wanted everyone to be comfortable and to have a relaxing and enjoyable experience locally.

“We wish to thank all the volunteers and everyone who has supported the event.”

Businesses and exhibitors generously contributed prizes, so the organisers decided to hold a raffle – raising more than £200 for family support charity Home-Start.
