An event to launch Taste Montgomery’s new leaflet and celebrate the initiative’s successful new website collaboration brought together local businesses and dignitaries this week.
The event which took place on February 22, hosted by Monty’s Brewery Visitor Centre at the Cottage in Montgomery, attended by a number of Taste Montgomery businesses and community leaders.
The aim of the event was to highlight the collaborative benefits of the ‘Taste Montgomery’ partnership and to showcase the initiative’s newly designed leaflet. It was also an opportunity to celebrate and demonstrate the website www.tastemontgomery.co.uk.
Taste Montgomery is a community initiative which brings together the strong links between its outstanding local food producers, shops, restaurants, cafes, hotels, pubs and B & Bs.
The event was opened by Montgomery Town Crier Sue Blower and closed with a speech by Mayor Councillor Eric Fairbrother. Other speakers included Ifor Humphreys, Taste Montgomery chairman and owner of Ifor’s Welsh Wagyu, David Wilson, the mastermind behind VisitMontgomery.co.uk and Russell George, Assembly Member for Montgomeryshire.
Ifor said: “This is an exciting time for Taste Montgomery. We are an active group who are are passionate about promoting Montgomery and its fantastic produce – we’re confident our new leaflet and website will really help us spread the word.”
The launch was a foodie delight with a strong focus around Taste Montgomery produce. Guests were served with a delicious selection of handmade Taste Montgomery canapés created by The Dolforwyn Hotel, Abermule as well as international award winning wine from Kerry Vale Vineyard, cider from Old Monty’s Cider and Monty’s Ales.
