The third annual Wells Food Festival took place last Sunday.
The beautiful little city of Wells
is such a wonderful setting for this gastronomic event,
with stalls and a giant marquee in the Market Square,
activities in the Town Hall,
further stalls all around the Bishop's Palace Moat
and yet more right through to the recreation field.
There is something for everyone.
Mr VJ lunched on a Venison Burger,
VJ had a warming bowl of bean feast soul food
and little man opted for smoked cheese macaroni.
Little man was exhausted.
VJ had just collected him from a nearby farm,
where he had camped overnight
with a small group of Scouts and Explorers.
The previous day they had completed a
12 mile sponsored hike for Children in Need.
They had to carry full kit on their backs all the way,
navigate their route using map and compass,
set up camp on arrival, light a fire, cook and then camp overnight.
It was a tough challenge but they all completed it!
The following day was an early start for VJ,
as she trundled off to the little town of Blandford Forum
for 'Vintage at the Village Hall',
organised by the lovely Elaine Kirsch of Fab Fairs.
It was a wonderfully busy day.
There were lots of happy customers.
A lovely array of 45 stalls,
selling either true vintage or original handmade,
VJ even bought a few Christmas presents for friends and family,
oh, and a couple of treats for herself!
Sorry, not many photos ... it was too busy!
Next one ... Spring 2016!
