Fete Accompli

It's Bank Holiday Monday, and we're on a roll with our final event of the weekend, the lovely Elton Village Fete. This annual homage to Teas, Tombola, and quality Bric-a-Brac also features a very good beer festival at the thatched Crown Inn, which also features a few ciders as it happens.

Whilst Karen happily rummaged her way through other peoples junk, I joined what seemed like half the village at the (ahem!) Gentlemans Creche for a few well-earned halves. I enjoyed cider from Cassels of Cambridgeshire, a sweetish Gwynt-Y-Ddraig Pyder, and a 'quality control' half of our own Red Kite Cider, which seemed to taste even better than when it left the ciderhouse. Three cheers for the Great British Fete.

Nice, were there only 8 ciders? Do you have crack at the beers as well?

8 was plenty under the circumstances. Limited time so the beers got by me I'm afraid. Next year...
