St Richards Festival.

I wanted to go back down the Droitwich Canal on Saturday (5th), as the weather forecast was for a dry sunny day, for St Richards Festival. We hadn’t been for a long walk for sometime and Bottle took some persuading as he doesn't like exercise much. As we strolled down the towpath there were several boats going down the canal towards the town. When we arrived the festival was in full swing with Clog Dancers, Morris Men, Farmers Market and stalls selling a wide variety of things. The main streets had been closed off and many vintage and classic cars were displayed all along them. Here is just a tiny selection of what was on show.

After trundling around all these highly polished treasures we had a rest in the Muffin Break over coffee and a snack. I was surprised to see Disney Pixar Cars in Wilkinson's and bought ‘Lewis Hamilton’ for our little Grandson. After picking up some bits we needed in Morrison's we made our way down to Vines Park where there were many things laid on to entertain all the children.

Well, if I’d told Bottle that we would be doing a round trip of three miles beforehand I don’t think he would have ventured out at all. Anyway I think he enjoyed it all, I know I did, even though we arrived back completely exhausted.
