This years themes were: 1) Working Parties  2) September Challenge  

Occupying a new tent compared to last year (again we were to the right side of an entrance to one half of the Greenspace trio of linked tents).   We were allocated 4 tables which we arranged as a U shape, with display boards on each corner and 3 "counter" areas where we could show our wares and discuss with visitors.  This year visitors could go round three sides of our stand, either on a trip round the tent, or splitting either way when coming in our entrance.

Outside again Mike Murray and his team provided a kissing gate, finger post, rustic fencing, log path edge/"stepping stones" and our Coventry Way board, with a bench and a picnic table supplemented this year by a Christmas tree.  Altogether an attractive display.

Saturday and Sunday were both "sunny periods with many heavy showers" - but the grass near us somehow never became the muddy quagmire of previous years.  Saturday was crowded with a continuous stream of visitors, with peaks whenever the rain started.  Although Sunday turned out as usual to be quieter than Saturday we were on the go all day.

A key success this year was recruiting a number of new members keen to help on our Working Parties

Overall the Festival was again a resounding success with our position in the marquee good.
