Barrow’s Wheelbarrow Weekend was back properly this year. 78 barrows throughout the village and a dozen Open Gardens. It just happened to coincide with some other celebrations that were going on. Many did have a Jubilee theme and lots didn’t, such as this winning entry. The people who made it do have horses and one of them gave rides up and down the streets (with a passenger cart attached). Variety and inventiveness were well in evidence once more. This was the entry by the Knit and Natter group – a complete knitted tea party.
Sylv’s barrow alludes to another queen, one she made and which we nickname Cleopatra.
Mine made use of last year’s castle, with some new towers added.
A great weekend in spite of some dismal weather!
