Our castle grounds were busy
Something for everyone
My friend with me on a walk around
Outside the walls
The Gala was all around the castle grounds
Loads of people came out to watch the parade
Loads of houses decorated
7 dwarfs with their waistcoats.
Lots of things going on inside the grounds of the castle, a main ring for performers and loads of charity stalls, selling cakes, plants ect.
The fun fair outside was in two half's, the children's ride on a different side to the main fair.
The local church inside the grounds set up a BBQ, they were very busy, most of us preferred to buy food from them, rather than the commercial vans.
We stayed a couple of hours, Will was getting fed up being in his pushchair, it was too busy to let him run about, but as we walked home, there were still loads of people making their way to the grounds.
It been years since we went to such a family event, it was much bigger than I expected, and brought back memories of my village fete and the numerous school fete we attended when our girls were growing up.
Daughter and Will stayed the afternoon, I put The Wiggles on TV for Will to dance along with, another grand son loving this great DVD, which we purchased for Josh.
Later we found a film, had a take away and enjoyed a lovely glass of red wine.
Today I have a bit of housework, followed by an hour in the garden and no plans for this afternoon, sounds perfect.
