Day 2

Wow, what a party!  We'd advertised the Big Picnic Lunch to start at noon.  The first party arrived at 1145 and there was a steady stream after that.  Never mind the weather - the Big Picnic was on!  Entertainers turned up as promised; we had music, magic, puppets, stilt walking, juggling, sack races, welly throwing, fancy dress, and more - 4 solid hours of fun.  The afternoon drew to a close with the Salvation Army band playing then a short ecumenical service to round off the day.
A second day of the community pulling together to put on a celebration and I hope that the press publish a good story about it, having rung me for an interview part way through judging the fancy dress competiton!
