Across Arcadia, in parlours and in makeshift kitchens kettles are boiled, dogs yawn, cats cradle and Elgar is once again on the radiogram as the last of the stragglers leaves the town of Redditch. And, whilst impromptu signs are removed from lamp-posts by overworked street urchins, trumpets sound throughout the Arrow Valley in thanks to all those who stalled out so stoically whilst outside the sun shone and to those who rose early and queued so patiently before the doors opened at 9am for yesterday's National Vintage Fishing Tackle Fair. Your presence was gracious and made for a most enjoyable and convivial day for all. We look forward to reviving the art of the fair on Sunday 17th November. For all enquiries including those about availability of stalls and requests for handbills please call me on the field telephone, number 07980 274 383. Thank-you.
