Well the weather for the Gala Day was pretty much as expected.
We went down to put the CWA marquee up with R wearing a waterproof and me making the assumption that as the sun was shining I would not get soaking wet in the five minutes it would take to do it. Bad plan. While I was standing holding the poles the sky opened and I got soaked to the skin.
That was then the theme for the day with rain and sun coming alternately and the field getting muddier and muddier.
So some money was made for the village, but the whole thing was not as successful as it could have been if the weather had been good. I suppose that is the big issue in general with living in one of the rainiest parts of the UK.
