             EAR visitors and
             competitors.
             This is the fifth year of
             the Evesham Angling
             Festival in its present
form and I bid you all a welcome,
particularly our hardy visitors that
return year on year.
  We welcome too the families that
support the anglers.
  We do try to make this a family
event where we keep the prices of
the food and drinks down to normal
town levels and not charge ‘County
Show’ prices, because we want
families to be able to share in the
Festival and afford to do so.
  I extend my welcome and thanks
