Royal wedding fever gathers in Sidmouth
More celebrations planned in Sidmouth for Wills and Kate’s special day
ROYAL wedding fever seems to be gathering in Sidmouth.
As well as the main town centre street party from 4pm to 7pm, organised by Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce, plans are afoot for at least three other events to mark Wills and Kate’s big day.
Families at a loose end on Friday, April 29, might enjoy a morning of fun at All Saints Church, Sidmouth.
Youth worker Kate Hamilton has been organising the family event, which starts at 10.30am for all in Sidmouth, with the service screened at 11am.

“Then there will be craft stalls for children to make their own royal memorabilia, such as crowns and Union Jacks, face painting and cream teas, finishing at 3pm,” said Kate.
The event is free and if you don’t have any glad rags to wear then smart casual is fine.
Sidmouth Football Club member Di Collings and four others, have been organising a family picnic and fun-day at the Woolbrook ground on Saturday, April 30 from 3pm until late.
Di said: “There will be a barbeque, bouncy castle and fancy dress, face painting and a disco until late as well as a prize draw.”
Rolls have been donated by bakers Vinnicombes and Upper Crust, while burgers and sausages have also been given.
People are asked to bring picnic food and drink on the day, which will also see various children’s races held for different age groups.
There is also talk of a residents’ street party being organised in Livonia Road.
Please let us know if you are planning local celebrations for the wedding of the year, or if you have memories of previous royal occasions marked in the town.
