We’ve been focusing on different producers and food experiences over the last few weeks, but now we’d like to talk about YOU! Yes, you dear reader!

Crail Food Festival is a community event, and as such relies on the help and good will of so many people to make it happen.  So this week’s message is about how you can help us – go on, it will give you a warm fuzzy feeling to be involved.
