Yaxley Village Fête, Suffolk - 18th June 2006

For a few hours on a Sunday, Nosher heads off down to Yaxley to scope out the village fête. Billy-boy's there, manning a coconut shy, as is Sam Coe and the Daisy half of Sam and Daisy. Although I missed a large chunk of it, there's still timw to catch some tug 'o' war and generally mill around.
