Superb location for South West regional final in Exeter
MOST people who have visited Exeter in Devon will agree that the cathedral and its square are among the most interesting parts of this ancient city.
And it was here that 24 16 to 30-year-old hopefuls got together for the day to take part in the Young Traders Market regional final.
The sun shone throughout and shoppers turned up in droves to support the abundance of products on offer.
From handmade bespoke dry robes to ice cream bubble waffles the public enjoyed the delights of the best of the South West young traders.
All due thanks must go to the InExeter Business Improvement District for securing the amazing location of Cathedral Green.
