The English Festival

Hi folks,  back again after a short delay to offer you some images of this local event in Gillingham Kent on a lovely sunny spring day be it a bit fresh. Trevor and I arrived as the event started and already it was very busy with people making the most of the sunshine.
One of the exhibitors caught my eye, that was Bee keeping and we chatted to a very knowledgeable lady for a while about the implications of keeping Bees.

Some of there products on display and for sale.

Next the fun side of the event, these characters were waiting for the mad hatters tea party to begin.

Keeping law and order by the market stalls.

One of the many food stalls on the site, this one tickled my fancy and it was an English Festival with a French van.

The event was very well arranged for the children with many rides including this one and all for free.

A few more to come but lots to do for the second half of the weekend, hope the sun keeps shining.

Thanks for looking.

Best regards, Mike.
