I have been looking forward to this years Abergavenny Food Festival (being held over this weekend) for some months - fortunately it seems no longer to clash with Plaid's annual conference, which is good for me and bad for my bank balance and potentially my cholesterol.  

The festival, which is now well established, enriches the market town of Abergavenny and the surrounding area and adds to Abergavenny's reputation as the ‘Gateway to Wales’. The Food Festival, is one of those well organised events that has helped to put the town on the map, and manages successfully to attract visitors from far and wide - both locally and from around the world and showcases exceptional local Welsh produce, local businesses and services and local talent - of which we have plenty of fine examples in the former county of Gwent. 

This year's festival, building on previous successes promises to be even better – the festival organisers and participants have helped make a real difference to Abergavenny and have added to the festivals well deserved and growing reputation as well as giving the traditional market town an international reputation and profile.
