Well, to be absolutely honest, a lovely bunch of men from the village rallied round to ‘make’ the shed – leaving me the role of painter and decorator AND chief supplier of tea. The Grand Opening’ of the shed was celebrated on Friday April 28th – with suitable fizz.
The shed now acts as a perfect place for children to sit and read on Saturday mornings, hold exhibitions and stack the old plastic chairs which come out once a year for the Charity Breakfast held on our drive.
So, a wonderful start to our May festival weekend (April 29th – May 1st) and many happy people enjoying the atmosphere of the event. England looks so very beautiful at this point in the year – fresh green everywhere and (between the showers) gentle sunshine and a chance to sit outside and chat with friends. The book-garage, garden, shed and canary-coloured caravan were full of book related installations, stimulating conversation over tea and cake in the Mad Hatter refreshment area.
Summer is on its way.
