AN exhibition highlighting local produce and organisations was a big hit with customers at Biggleswade's ASDA store on Saturday.

Staff set out to show that ASDA takes pride in its local community.

Companies and organisations were invited to join them and show what is best about Biggleswade.

Among those featured in the store were the Biggleswade History Society, the town twinning association, Churches in Action and groups representing young children.

The Biggleswade History Society attracted a lot of attention as they were looking to recruit their 100th member - by the end of the day they signed up their 101st.

"The event brought a different feel to the store with shoppers stopping to allow their children to make musical instruments and to sing," said the store's events co-ordinator Zoe Homfray-Cooper.

"Fun was had by old and young in the store."

Among the three local suppliers ASDA have in the area, Jordans supported the event, giving customers a free treat with their cereal bars.

"We hope we have shown a little of what makes Biggleswade special on this occasion and next year perhaps more groups and organisations will come forward to share and shout about what makes Biggleswade such a fantastic place to live and work," added Ms Homfray-Cooper.
