‘Spring Fling’ brings ‘em in

Barnstaple traders join forces to promote town centre shopping mall.

AN event designed to encourage High Street shoppers to visit a Barnstaple shopping mall has been hailed a success by organisers.

Gammon Walk businesses joined forces to showcase their services with a day of activities and promotions.

Organiser Phil Middleton, owner of Bazaar, said: “The ‘Spring Fling’ created a lot of interest in the Walk and worked really well.

“Traders created a good atmosphere and I think everyone had a lot of fun and was really pleased with how it went.
