Hello! Welcome to our Bank Holiday Fete! I hope we’re all going to have a lot of fun!
We’ve got all the usual attractions – Winston’s catering outlets, candy floss and lots of games and competitions.
Oh, here’s a new attraction for this year, a hoop-la stand! Fury’s going to have a go…
Oh! Well, you haven’t won a prize, but you have won Nano!
Peggy is minding the “Guess the Weight of the Cake” stand this year. Micro is asking whether it’s metric or imperial. She says it’s Victoria sponge, so probably Imperial.
Bernard is very interested in something on Winston’s bric a brac stall. Is it the fishing rod, or the umbrella?
Oh, no, it’s the pot they are sitting in. He asks Winston where he got it. Winston said it came in a job lot and it was handy for storing tall things.
Bernard says he thinks it might be quite old and valuable and Winston should get it checked out at the museum. It might be a Greek Urn!
What’s a Greek Urn? said Winston. “About 10 drachmas a day!” chipped in Vincent. They all laughed, but Bernard said they really ought to find out about the urn.
Now, it’s time for the Maypole dance! We do enjoy this. We go round and round, in and out, in ancient intricate patterns until we all meet in the middle. Now, how’s that?
Oh. Well, it might not be Quite Right, but it was fun.
On to the next entertainment, the Morris Dancers! Hypno is playing accordion. He couldn’t find his boater, so I lent him my fez.
Round and round, in and out they go, with Dim playing the fool in the middle. Oh look! Nano’s joining in for a ride!
After all that exertion, we sat down to watch Peggy’s puppet show. All except Hypno and Arnold, who have to go and fetch something they’ve arranged.
Oh, what a surprise! What fun! Hypno’s made some funny photo boards! He’s going to take our pictures!
Look at me! How do you like my costume! And Esther, that’s quite some bikini! This is so much fun!
We are all enjoying this!
Nano says it’s all very well, but he can’t reach!
Oh! It’s ok! Hypno has thought of Nano, he has his own little window!
Oh hello Micro, what’s that? You’ve arranged something yourself? Good grief! A high diving platform!
Oh gosh, up he goes! Up and Up! So high!
He’s right at the top! Surely he’s not going to.. Yes, he’s dived!
Oh! A parachute! Look at him gliding down! How clever! Such a soft landing!
Well that was exciting. But you know, I think I could do that jump. Well, no-one’s looking now…
Here we go!
Whoops! Sorry everyone!
Well, it’s getting on, so it’s time for the best bit of our fete – the street party feast! Peggy is bringing over the Victoria Sponge cake.
Ofelia and Bernard have made rhyming sandwiches – jam, spam and Edam! Matida’s jelly is spectacular. And Winston and Vincent rustled up some little buns.
Ernest has brought jugs of squash, and Fury made some toffee apples!
Goodness. Esther did some research into WW2 and read about how they used to give children carrots on sticks, instead of lollies! She’s made enough for us all apparently. Oh good.
Still Ernest got a funny shaped one, which made us all laugh!
Well, we have had a lovely day, and this is a feast to round it all off. We’ll be enjoying ourselves for hours. I hope you’ve had a good day too!
