WOW, what an incredible weekend of FIRE & STEAM BikeLights events! We are completely overwhelmed with how wonderful and different each event was, in our two amazing towns; how brilliant all the workshops have been; and all the bits in between!
Thank you to EVERYONE involved: our schools, children & staff, our commissioned and community artists, our elderly and community participants, our brilliant event teams and crew, our volunteers and stewards, our amazing funders and supporters – particularly The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England and FEAST – and each of our fantastic local community and heritage partner organisations who have worked so generously and tirelessly to help make these events happen. To our amazing Coasters cyclists who braved the Trail with their Coasters Camel locomotive creation to recreate the journey of the original Camel locomotive from Wadebridge to Bodmin & back again on Sunday! To EVERYONE who has contributed their time, money, love and energy to this fantastic community project! AND, to all of you, who came out in their droves to enjoy and to support our magical FIRE & STEAM processions in each town!
We will be posting more photos, footage and updates over the coming days and weeks – and we would also like to breathe a sigh of relief at the weather for being kind on both days, in spite of some dodgy forecasts! – To all of you, for the time being, a MASSIVE THANK YOU!
