  1. Enjoyable day, as always, though occasionally a touch bizzarre. Well done, Hickling! Got to say the black monolith between the apes at no11 really threw us. Could have sworn it was 2001, A Space Odyssey. And Peter and Phillipa! What are you like?

  3. I would like to enquire about availability of a craft stall for the weekend festival 8th/9th September. Who should I contact – is there a number. I design my own sleepwear gift sets combined with matching make up bags, and would very much like to attend. My email address is – thank you Louise Hopkins
