Sponsor delighted to be back at the foodie heaven event on July 11 in Ilfracombe

Marsdens Devon Cottages is proud to once again sponsor the Marsdens North Devon Street Food Awards in Ilfracombe on Saturday, July 11 as part of the All Things Morris weekend.

The first street food event last year was a huge success and Gloria O'Connell at Marsdens said they were delighted to have been asked to return as sponsors by organiser Events 4 Ilfracombe.

“We feel community events are very important for attracting visitors to our area and vital for supporting our local businesses,” she said.

“Marsdens is highly committed to supporting the community wherever possible. It is our absolute pleasure to be involved again.”

As one of last year's judges, she added: “I am already looking forward to sampling the delicious food that will be on offer.

“I was spoilt for choice last year; the quality of the food was outstanding. It was really difficult to choose the winners.”

This year the event runs from midday and vendors will battle it out by offering an array of food to win the stomachs of the judges, the public and a coveted 'Maurice' trophy.

All Things Morris runs from Friday to Sunday, July 10-12 and will feature Morris dancers from across the UK plus Morris cars, music, entertainment, a craft fair and an exhibition on William Morris at the museum.
