The food and drink were laid out in the tent, and decorations
There was Sloe gin for the people who drank alcohol, and ginger drinks for those who didn't, also various soft drinks for the kids.
The patchwork hares made an excellent back drop to the food table on which was mainly vegan delights with a few vegetarian options and a few meat trays brought by family and friends. We roasted the chestnuts in the house as we could not light the firepit, but they seem to go down just as well.
The wishing bunting was made from strips of material in red, gold and green. We also had the Bedford Wood Little Library, where people could take books, to either keep return or swap.
The lorrys woodburner was blazing away making the lorry a place for people to warm up and escape the gales. I managed to take these photos just before the torches were spotted along the lanes carried by family, friends and neighbours. Everyone clammed into the tent and lorry with standing room only, but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.So I would just like to wish everyone Solstice Greetings, and now that the days will be getting longer we look forward to the Summer Solstice.
