It was the first day that the public were invited in to the BCBF, but I started the day in more potentially back-breaking labour. I helped to erect the second stage, which involved a lot of screwing, unscrewing and rescrewing nuts and bolts holding lengths of stage "scaffolding" together. This is the finished result.
For lunch Jan and I went to the nearby church which was providing good value food (I had a bacon and sausage cob, quiche and salad, chocolate cake and tea. The tea was made with UHT milk - I couldn't drink more than a couple of mouthfuls).
I saw Andy and Helen on their Wildside (boat) stall; also Barry and Sandra on their homebrew (boat) stall. BCF boat Kew had a good central location and was doing a fair trade in showing people round the boat.
Tomorrow - well, I'll write about tomorrow tomorrow, when it will be "today".
