Saturday, 15th September 2018
CEREMONY OF FIRST FRUITS
Venue: TRINITY TOWER
Time: 10.30
Certificates are given out for the winners of the Allotment and Garden Competition.
A sample of corn is judged


The ancient custom of the First Fruits shows the Mayor as the leader of the town in all its ceremonial traditions. Nowadays, after some introductory remarks by the Town Mayor, and thanksgiving prayers by a clergyman, a local farmer presents to the Mayor a small sackful of newly threshed corn. This the Mayor hands over to a miller, who examines the corn and when he passes favourable judgement on its quality, the Mayor presents the farmer with a bottle of wine. Other bottles are broached, and bystanders are invited to join in a toast to a good harvest.
