Chapel Street Puts Out the Bunting

Preparations for the Fête

With only 2 days to go before this year's Fête the preparations are in full swing. The event takes place on Saturday 11th June - the very same day as the Queen's 90th birthday. Celebrations are being held up and down the country including right here in Titchmarsh. For that reason there's more than a little royal flavour to this year's Fête and it seems everyone is keen to play their part.

In Chapel Street a plucky band, led by John Marriot, have been putting out the bunting. The street is now festooned with fluttering Union flags. (At least until someone comes along in a big lorry and snaps them!)

Don't forget the Fête this Saturday - from 12:00 noon!

 

Footnote: I should just add that at 7:30am this morning, a huge bin lorry did trundle down Chapel St! I heard the beast approaching long before I saw it. Fearing the worst, I dashed out hoping to intercept the vehicle before it snagged the bunting suspended across the street. I needn't have worried. Just as the inevitable was about to happen, the driver spotted the flags and brought the lorry to a shuddering halt. He then proceeded to reverse all the way back up Chapel Street - before continuing his journey via the turning at the village green.

Well done that man! Clearly the patriotic spirit has got to us all.
