We are just about recovering from a very busy FAB festival weekend here in Middlewich. My daughters had lots of fun partaking in the Middlewich Rose Fete parade and arena display, followed by an afternoon of playtime and games. I spent the weekend down at the Middlewich Narrowboats boatyard, displaying my books and watching the musicians perform. And our dog got himself a very smart new bandana, isn’t he handsome?
The floating market was a sight to behold. There were boats moored all along the canal as far as the eye could see, stretching all the way from the Kings Lock pub on the Sandbach road, to the Big Lock pub on Webbs Lane. The section of canal that runs from the town centre out to the Big Lock pub forms part of our daily walking route with the dog, and so we could not avoid the bright, colourful boats, and everything they had to offer.
The boatyard was buzzing with activity all weekend, the beer boat ran out of ale, the oatcake boat did a roaring trade, and everybody came away happy and tired. I do believe it was the biggest and best FAB festival to date, although I am certain there will be many more to come.
