Cranbrook Day – celebrating the cutting of the town’s first turf six years ago – was a great success with positive feedback, say its organisers.

The event – the fourth of its kind – was held at the Cranbrook Education Campus on Sunday, June 25, in weather that varied from bright sunshine to overcast with gusts.

Bigger than ever, with more trade and charity stands, food and drink outlets and two performance stages, it attracted more than 2,000 people from the town and surrounding areas, including Exeter, Exmouth and Honiton.

Entertainment included a display from the Star Tae Kwon Do group, Cornerstone Choir, East Devon Sounds, Nigel Grimshire and Stay Lucky.

Organised by the Cranbrook and District Rotary Club, its president Charlie Street said he was ‘really chuffed with the day’s event’.
