Excitement mounts over Presteign Food Trail
The Presteigne Food Trail on June 16 is an all day event which has been given funding by the Lottery and Sustainable Tourism Powys, and because so many of the people who live and work in the town have generously volunteered hours of their time to make it happen, most of the day's programme can be given away free of charge . Even car parking charges have been waived by Powys County Council

As well as being extremely informative, this small volume has much humour, and is sure to inspire anyone to have a go at making cider or perry.
