Torrington's First Harvest festival...Lemon drizzle cake competition!

This weekend saw Torrington's first Harvest festival run by the Co-Op. It was held in the pannier market in the centre of the town.

A&J Opticians were asked to judge the lemon drizzle cake competition. James, his wife and daughter went to sample the best that Torrington has to offer.

After a clear winner and much debate on who was to come second and third, the award was placed by the cakes and the local 'Torrington Silver Band' played whilst we all enjoyed a cream tea at the market cafe and awaited the draw of the raffle....sadly despite having quite a few tickets it was fruitless for James!

We made the trophy from a pair of glasses mounted onto a spectacle side and a perspex block. The plaque was supplied by Torrington jewellers.

We hope to find out the name of the winner for our next blog, but in the meantime we would like to thank everyone for taking part this year and hope to see many more entrants next year!

Maui Jim Sunglasses

Just because some one has flicked the switch on summer and invited Autumn in, it doesn't mean that we can stop wearing our sunglasses.
If you are struggling with glare, that's the bright light that the sun makes on a wet road for example, come in and have a look at our Maui Jim sunglasses and we can show you just how easy it is to eliminate the glare and allows you to see the road ahead of you. Soon the sun will start to get lower in the sky and the Autumn rain will fall (much as we don't want it to happen!) that drive home along the link road will get harder.

Give James a call and arrange a demonstration. 01805 628271.
