Our many visitors had lots to do. We welcomed back Pulp Friction, who brought their famous smoothy bike and supplied everyone with delicious concoctions, all created with a bit of human-powered blending. They also brought their mini-tandem which uses child-labour to make bubbles - a huge hit!
Sarah from Walk on the Wildside came to show folk how to make dream-catchers, which were very popular, and Shona from Fig Local helped to make and serve a lot of the food. Tracey turned up with a carrot cake decorated by herself and Kath, the lovely lady who created our fabulous logo.

We are also delighted to report that the event was a lot greener than last year! Dan inaugurated the new (well, new to us!) lawnmower which is push-powered, so our lawn didn't need any fossil fuel to get it in trim for the party. Then at the do itself, apart from having used quite a bit of our own produce for the food, we were also using charcoal made from locally coppiced wood by the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, so we reckon that made it a carbon neutral barbeque. We managed to get nearly all re-useable or compostable utensils and plates, and a lot of the guests walked or cycled to get there. Now we just need to finish off the clay oven, and we can be producing our own pizzas and breads as well!
It was great to see so many folk there, and to get so many positive comments afterwards.
Well done to everyone who helped on the day - you were all stars!
