A day of local Fayres

June is THE time when it comes to local events where Joe Blogs ( to US readers – John Doe) brings his family for a free day out.

1st stop Collett Park in Shepton Mallett. The field was full of local interest stands, voluntary ‘do good’ organisations and a splendid brass band with a singer that was up to the mark. There is an active model boat club that used the local lake to show off its steering and power abilities (many were powered by steam)

We looked for a decent brunch but could find nothing apart from fish and chips, hamburgers, pulled pork and the usual assortment of sugar bombs (aka sweet cakes).

We left and walked down the main street where Francoise went to buy some fish from our favorite Polish shop whilst I went in to the community cafe for some latte.   £2.80 for a latte with almond milk! A bargain.

Off to Tescos for a weekend shop.  They seem to be being bullied by the LGBQHT whatever that means to normalise this rather strange attitude to sexuality.  Why are these movements so weaponized. Can we not have our own views and hold them without being attacked.


Second Stop Timsbury Day, a combination of sports, small stalls, food, story telling, art exhibitions and  an antique car rally.


Third Stop – Peasedown St John with bands playing, ice cream and food aplenty, lots of local stalls, and families out enjoying themselves. We found the thumping bass music a bit loud so retreated under half and hour later. We noticed a beautiful display of flowers in one of the gardens (see below)

And so to home for a very late lunch plus me enacting a spontaneous idea to publish my friend Penny Power’s thoughts.
