Shoppers braved the rain to see the best of what Bedford businesses offer during a weekend showcase.

Saturday’s community event, running from 9.30am to 4.30pm, displayed a wealth of indepedent retailers and there was a handmade in Bedfordshire market.

Mayor of Bedford Borough Dave Hodgson said: “I want to thank everybody who came out to support and to celebrate their local High Street, despite the appalling weather.

“Particular thanks, too, to everyone who took part and defied the conditions to put on a great event including the singing and dancing stage performers, Lady K for managing the stage, our local businesses, market traders and the local organisations who put on nearly all of the activities for free”.
