Pork Roast and Thai Festival.

Hello folks.

Since we came home, I have been very busy, so I apologise for not posting earlier.

On arriving back, I needed to blitz the gardens and get rid of the weeds.

On Sunday 5th July, it was Warwick Open Gardens and the raised beds were no where near their best for the visiting gardeners.

The only bed which looked lovely was the Wildflower bed.

Even our garden needed to be weeded, so from the Wednesday evening to the Saturday afternoon, I worked on the beds to make them look tidier. Thankfully the visiting public seemed to love the Arm and they did not seem to worried by the fact that the gardens were not at their best. We got to meet and greet many new people, who did not know the Arm existed.

Saturday 11th July and it was time for the Pig Roast organised to thank the volunteers who have helped to make the Arm what it is today. So volunteers and guests arrived at 12 noon.

We had a fabulous turn out.

The Pig Roast certainly went down well.

Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and thankfully the weather was very kind to us.

Sunday 12th July.

Warwick Thai Festival day and although the clouds were ominous, we decided to take our rain coats and head up into the town.

We got their early and saw the stall holders setting up.

The food stalls sent a wonderful smell around the market square and we were both looking forward to lunch.

The local dignitaries were out in their official capacity enjoying the event.

The BBC Coventry and Warwickshire radio car was also in town.

Amongst the food stalls were the craft stalls as well and so it was hoped for a wonderful day. Keith and I ate early and we were glad we did, because at lunchtime, the heavens opened and it threw it down, so we decided to head into the Museum, which we had never been into before. It was well worth the visit and it meant we did not get totally soaked. The walk home however was a tad damp. On returning to the boat the sun appeared again, so hopefully the Festival will be a success.

As you can see it has been a busy time for us since coming home.
