Fete at Rodmersham Primary School
My Come Dine with Me “Cool Gang” were invited to open the Fete at Rodmersham Primary School on 3rd July 2011. Rodmersham is a little village in the Parish of Swale Council in Kent. It is near the town of Sittingbourne. My husband was the chauffer for the day, as I am completely hopeless when it comes to finding my way round places. We drove past old farmhouses with thatched roof and lovely green fields with horses and cows grazing side by side. We were very lucky on the day that the sun shone and there was not a cloud in the sky. The road was very busy for many people who were all bound for the fete were driving or walking upon it. When we got to the fete, there were shady areas to shelter from the burning sun!!
Now it was turn for me to do the deed i.e. cutting the ribbon. I was handed the scissors by one of the organisers. And when I was prompted to cut the ribbon to declare the fete open, it was as blunt as “James Blunt” (hahaha). After a couple of tries, I succeeded in cutting the tape to the relief to everyone around and there were cheers of delight. And I then declared the Fete open. We all mingled with the crowd, exchanged pleasantries, drank home made beer, treated ourselves to ice-cream to cool down and finally I patronised a local lady who was selling home-made linen baskets – and I bought one for the grand sum of “£12″!! I love it as it blends with the decor in my house.
So my friends and I departed after spending a couple of hours with everyone and it seems a good time was had by all.
