Wow - what a fabulous day we had yesterday when we took part in the Nene Valley Festival by hosting a special open day and craft fair.
Being the new kids on the block, it was the first time we had dipped our toes in the water to participate in the week long festival and it really was a terrific success. In fact we now can not wait until next year, when hopefully our facilities building will be up and running allowing us to go all out and organise a bigger event or even a series of events!
I know we are always banging on about the weather, but my goodness me, we really were extremely lucky with it yesterday - the sun shone and there was not a drop of rain about. What really made the day was the selection of lovely craft stalls we had, small yet beautiful - there was canal art, upcycled denim, crocheting and photography, upcycled bottles, pet portraits as well as a spinning demonstration. However it was the fabulous music by The Drifter that really helped to set the scene. Throughout the day, Haydn played some fabulous tunes on his guitar which all of our numerous visitors clearly enjoyed.
All in all a great day which was rounded off by a very relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable BBQ for all our regular moorers.
Thanks to everyone who rolled up their sleeves and got involved.
