After its postponement in the spring, it's wonderful that we will be able to enjoy it this autumn. The Art Trail brings together artists and local businesses, and gives people the opportunity to see works of art in different settings, either by taking a tour of the whole Trail, or seeing the work of individual arts when they visit participating shops and restaurants."#

The Trail provides talented artists from the region with the opportunity to share their work with a wider public. During these challenging times it will be especially pleasing to see the town transformed by such a range of creativity."
