Cream teas, knobbly knees and a summer breeze
Once again, the bookstore reigned supreme at the St Alban’s Fête on Saturday at Churchillparken in the city centre as hundreds descended on its tables to get a 10 kroner bargain copy of ’50 Shades of Grey’ and ‘The Da Vinci Code’.
Among those enjoying the bargains were Junior Williams and Grace Tettah;
Alexander, caught here munching on some homemade British-style cake;
and Judy Fitzgerald and Dorothy Ocanda, who worked tirelessly to keep people happy in the cream tea tent
Visitors to the fête were treated to a wide range of entertainment that included jazz and a bagpiper. And as well as the bargains on the books, there was a multitude of international delicacies to sample, including British cream teas and cake, greasy burgers and Indian snack food.
Among those present were Janet Kamara and friends at the bric-a-brac stall;
Rosemary Bohr, who was caught here purchasing some homemade marmalade from the home produce stall;
Claire Clausen (centre left) and friends on the white elephant stall selling tomorrow’s antiques;
and Divia Kurian cooking up a storm at the Indian food stall (a welcome addition this year)
