May Day Village Fete.

We have just enjoyed a village fete complete with maypole dancing, 'old fashioned' fairground games, a band playing and lots of cake to eat.

This particular celebration was arranged to celebrate the fact that, after years of bureaucracy, our small village green was finally registered and protected from development.

The children seemed to really enjoy their dancing, we certainly enjoyed watching them.

There was plenty for everyone to do
Including a large steam train running around a garden to the delight of every child large and small!
Fortunately the rain stayed away and although it was cloudy and chilly it didn't spoil anyone's enjoyment.

RESOLUTION -the novel

I'm still busy editing, looking for repetition and areas where the story doesn't flow...and I'm finding plenty of them! I have been asked to give a few hints about the story. I will, very soon, well, when I feel brave enough.  One little tidbit to keep you going is that my four main characters are Carly Mitchell, Ben Thornton, Steve Sinclair and Emily Anderson. The story is centred in a small Yorkshire Mill Town called Yeardon and in the Resolution Hotel within the town. Enough for now!
