Greenbelt

A different experience of Greenbelt this year - much lower key and fitting in around the routine of a certain six week old boy. But still enormous fun. Said six week old was absolutely enraptured by the Poet Laureate, and cooed over by loads of friends (many of whom we only seem to see at Greenbelt these days).

Highlights (other than friends) were Michael Symmonds Roberts poetry reading; sitting drinking hot chocolate when we should have been at the communion service; Traidcraft wine tasting and the organic beer tent!

And right at the end, we were part of a Foundation led service (a revisiting of the Pentecost service, Breath, that we put on a while ago). Great fun and thanks for Grandparental help with little one. As part of the service, we turned this ...


into this ...


And Andrew Motion also visited the Poetry Shed that other members of Foundation put together. (The Poet Laureate in our Poetry Shed - how great is that?!)



And I feel it important to share with you this picture of a City fan ...



All in all great fun was had by all three of us.

Having seen that particular City fan looking all depressed in the beer tent the day before, I take it that snap was taken after a successful service! Well done you guys...glad we had the excuse not to have to grapple with all those dangly things again!
