Along the River Wey, up through Gostrey Meadow into Downing Street, then into the churchyard.
As I walked in, a teddy bear on a parachute came floating down from the church tower. The only one I saw.
There did not seem to be many people or that many stalls.
The usual rubbish, though may have been better had I arrived earlier.
The book stall had a few good books. I picked up a copy of The Shack.
No food left at the barbecue. On a previous occasion, lots left.
Inside the church quiche and salad. Followed by cream tea. Though I was baffled why the jam and cream in little plastic pots. Appalling waste of money and bad for the environment.
I am no great fan of FairTrade, but shocked to see the coffee Nescafe.
Why does the church not invite the tea van I see in Gostrey Meadow (though not he last few weeks) and share the proceeds or charge a reasonable pitch fee? Similar with the ice cream, invite Dylan’s ice Cream.
The church has a very rare Bible, rarely seen. Today was one of those rare occasions.
Known as the Vinegar Bible, due to a misprint. The Parable of the Vineyard in the Gospel of Luke has become The Parable of the Vinegar.
I then realised four o’clock, I would be lucky to catch the butcher. Luckily I did. Sadly he has not ordered copies of Flatpack Democracy. Asked would I? I agreed yes.
I popped in the piano shop in Downing Street and let the lady know about the programme on BBC Radio 4 on Steinway (broadcast Thursday evening rebroadcast Sunday evening).
A walk around Bishop’s Meadow, into the field with the horses, then back via Manor Field.
A patch fenced off. No notice explaining why. It is vital Bishop’s Meadow Trust keep people informed, as that is how you continue with public support.
Waitrose fortunately not too busy.
