Bude’s Heritage Day was a sunny success

Well done to Janine King and her team for yesterday’s Bude Heritage Festival day, which was the first non-virtual event to take place at the Castle this year.

The weather was kind, so it was lovely to see people enjoying the sunshine while listening to The Bencoolen Wreckers, Launceston-based The Countrymen and Bude Metric.

The annual Bude-Stratton Heritage Festival has become a firm favourite in the town’s events calendar. Originally called ‘Gurney Day’, which celebrated our famous Victorian inventor, Sir Goldsworthy Gurney, the festival has gone from strength to strength and not only celebrates the wide and varied heritage of Bude and Stratton but also the many community groups the area has to offer.

This year’s event was slightly smaller than usual due to the pandemic but the turnout was really good. First steps to normality …
