Not everything is bad in England in spite of what NU Labour has done to ruin the UK, the past few weeks have been very good weather wise, just right to explore Kent. This time of year there is always a Horticultural/Farming show plus the end of all the Village Fetes. Two weeks ago I made my annual visit to the Goose Fair in Challock Nr Ashford, this fair is based on when the Geese were driven to Market. This is a real Country Fair with lots of shows and demonstrations by Amateur clubs, plus you have a lot of local stalls selling their wares an excellent typical English scene, The following week I was of to a Cider and Apple festival at the Brogdale Trust near Faversham A registered charity, responsible for the maintenance of the National Fruit Collection. This was a great Day Tractor and Trailer ride round the fruit plantations, various local crafts on display, hog roast, cooking demo, live folk music and of course lots of Apples and Cider a great day out. Sadly I missed this year Hop Festival at Faversham the last time I went there was a plethora of Morris Dancers, the streets of Faversham do make for a unique festival. Weddings are also a must for this time of the year something our NU Labour Government has tried their best to discourage but they continue to flourish. Valerie and I (married 38 years) were to friends of ours Graham and Jenny Sargent invited us to their daughter’s Karen’s wedding. The pair have a lovely converted Barn and in the grounds they had a large and I mean large Marquee erected for the Wedding breakfast and subsequent party, it was a traditional White wedding the evening was followed by a three piece band, no drunks, no plastic glasses, no family fights and no disco a great day to remember.
So as you can see there is lot to be thankful for being English and being a Man of Kent mind you it would be better if could get rid of Gordon and his cronies.
