Oh yes - that can only mean one thing - summer fete time in rural England.
Yesterday afternoon was spent a few miles away at Westleton Barrel Fair - never been? Then don't miss it next summer. Its every thing a village fete event should be;
A brass band - not MrVV's this time
A mix-n-match folky music group from a local pub. Great entertainment. You might recognise their frontman?
Its Doc Cox from That's Life - a nearby resident.
Barrel racing - just one length of the track for the women
But the men had to do the return push too!
Plus loads of other stalls - selling crafts, books, plants, ice-creams, Punch & Judy, a WI tea tent and of course plenty of beer too.
So much to do & see plus friends to bump into & have a natter with. We took the 2 bedroom hobbits - did they enjoy themselves??
Judge for yourself ;)
Guess they had too much fresh air last week when we were camping!!
Now you might be expecting me to mention Aldeburgh Carnival & Fireworks which happen today. Well we've made the decision this year not to bother - the weather hasn't been great today, MrVV is busy working and to be honest it all gets too busy & crowded. Big son has spent the day there working - he was part of the Scout/Explorer car parking squad - I think he's had a good time plus of course his bank balance benefits too.
See you again soon - still need to show you some vintage/Cath/floral stuff from my hols!!
