The Big Picnic
The Big Picnic is another case of recording the present for future generations. The Sunday of the Diamond Jubilee weekend was not the best day for weather – but a big picnic went ahead inside the Community Hall. It didn’t seem to dampen the sense of fun as a large community gathered to consume their own food and drink, surrounded by friends and family.
There we have the chair of our Parish Council, along with his wife and mother-in-law.
There were several tables, which filled and emptied and refilled as people came and went.
Of course, it’s the people who dress up who make the star photos – the ones which we might hope will be on display in the museum when King William V celebrates his Silver Jubilee in the distant future.
What a splendid waistcoat
Of course, people like these two can help form a wrong impression – they were the exception rather than the rule at the Market Lavington Big Picnic.
Most people were more normally dressed whether young or old. That bouncy castle was a big hit with the youngsters.
These are just a few of the photos which will be stored for posterity.
