We made it along to Lewisham People's Day this year for the first time. Seeing as we now only live about 15 minutes walk from the park we really should! (Although closing off our nearest gates meant it took us a bit longer to get there than that...)
Once we'd made it past the security gates we enjoyed ourselves, anyway! Lots of stalls to browse (including one giving useful info about home composting!) and James enjoyed the different musical stages. I just wish we'd had some reins or similar with us so he could have walked around a bit more without running off. He was not happy at being put back in the buggy after having had the chance to wander!
Of course the highlight of the day was seeing Richard the Canadian guy from BB7 sitting on the grass with his mates. He was being accosted by loads of people going, "Are you Richard from BB7?" At least that's what I assume they were asking anyway!
I also picked up an "I love Hither Green" badge. They'd run out of Catford and Lewisham already by the time we got to the stall....
We didn't stay long as it was the boy's tea time soon enough, but we'll be back next year and we'll make sure we take our picnic rug too!
