That’s that then. The last Bank Holiday until the end of August. Why are our public holidays spaced out like this? The lucky people of Cheltenham had a great street fair today, full of noise and bustle, dogs and pushchairs, music, bouncy castles, stilt walkers, sizzling food, plants, stalls, music, coffee, Tristram Stuart campaigning about food waste, showing how fruit that would be otherwise thrown out had been turned into a delicious mango sorbet in fruit leather. More about The Taste of Freedom campaign here. And Gill the Painter, who had abandoned her sourdoughs and her bicycle for the day in order to run a stall with her friend Lelia showcasing some of her lovely artworks. Her Marmite painting greeting cards were surprisingly popular! I love her picture of her sister and twin and the great picture of the Dan Lepard baking class.
