Filling holes in Pelsall Common

Volunteering at the set-up stage of a festival is a lot more interesting than volunteering during it. As well as sign erection there was more fencing to assist with and a considerable number of chairs to move. Here the team - three WRGies and I - are filling holes in the grass where some of the trade stands are ging to be.

Earlier in the day Swallow came past to boost the number of historic boats.

This afternoon Kew arrived with a new throttle cable after the attentions of RCR; we had a barbecue and invited David and Mary with John and Sue, their crew for the past fortnight. It got a bit rushed towards the end as we didn't want to miss the start of the quiz, hosted as always by Martin Ludgate. We made up a rather large team of ten and managed a creditable fourth place out of about 20 teams.

Tomorrow the festival opens to the public; I'm on programme duty for a couple of hours in the morning while Jan is going to help out with the children in the WoW stand. And then there's the BCF stand to manage.
