At 2 pm the crowds gathered – the fete was opened …
It was warm and sunny – lots of tea was drunk
And the parish bunting project was voted a huge success!! Doesn’t it look fantastic? And it was fun to wander around and hear comments … “My dad’s pyjamas…”, “Last year’s frock..” “… old curtains”
Eco-friendly, community-enhancing bunting at only a fraction of the price – to buy the equivalent would have cost about £900 – to make it ourselves cost only £40 (for the tape). A job very well done indeed – and a lot of fun too!
Finally, a big thank you to everyone who has contributed a hint or tip – I’ve taken the form down now and will spend some time the next couple of weeks compiling the 100+ responses into a format we can all enjoy.
Looks like you all had a wonderful sunny afternoon
That bunting is fantastic — so much neater than if it had been bought new!
Love the bunting! 🙂
I love that bunting! It is going on my list of 'must do's'. Thank you for sharing.
What a great idea, the bunting is just wonderful.
Wasn't it a glorious day yesterday? We went to a village fair near us, it was really well supported and everyone was smiling in the sunshine.
Looks like you had a lovely day for the fair. I swear that man drinking a cuppa in the photo looks just like my dad!
So much on my blog is now on my to-do list.
Thanks for all the ideas and the lovely photos too.
