Stony Stratford Folk on the Green 2016

This is always one of my favourite events.  It is a day full of music, laughter, good company and good sales.
We arrived in good time, but setting up in the rain is never fun. Nonetheless, we got it all done in good time - but I was already very wet after the initial set up.
Fortunately our stall neighbours commented how useful a tarpaulin was in these situations - and even more fortunately my husband managed to buy one from a local hardware shop.  We blessed that tarp all day!
The rain was intersperesed with sunshine, and the temperature remained warm throughout.  The people were their usual friendly selves.
 The music was good, and the food delicious.  I particularly enjoyed the strawberries and cream with the addition of meringue - strawberries and cream never tasted so good!
 The rain did fall...

and fall...
and fall....
This last shot is of a neighbouring stall, its awning weighted down by rainfall.  This after the rainwater had been twice cleared by a very lovely crew member.
Despite the rain, it was a good day with excellent sales.  We felt so sorry for the bands and the organisers, dealing with the worst of British weather.  We were not disappointed though, and fully intend to return next year.
