Invitation for KKF to be a participant in The Cherry Festival at Brogdale Fruit Collections Faversham. This is mainly for Teddy Bear Parachuting, but also to fly some kites if possible, and possibly kite making workshop for children. From 10am to 4pm. Parking on flying field. If as in previous years the number of children to make their own kites has been limited, which is how I am approaching the day, I should be able to manage the workshop on my own
At this moment I am not taking the kite making workshop to Brogdale, but will aroudn to assist Bill with the Teddy Bear Parachuting, I hope there will be one or two others who will be able to assist. We have also been requested to fly some kites. Not sure how much spare room we shall have to fly.
We have to be in place for 10am start and the day runs until 4pm.
If any other member wishes to come along to the Cherry Festival other than those who are supporting the Teddy Bear Parachuting, I am sorry but you will have to park in the main carpark and pay entrance costs as a member of the public, unless you are able to blag your way through the entrance.
Our grateful thanks to the Good Samaritans who helped get us mobile after what was a lovely Bear Bunging session at Brogdale - it was a rather hot afternoon to be pushing a car around. We made it home without further problems so THANKYOU very much.
We got home around 8.30 last night car emptied and everything put away, oh got home via attending a b.b.q. Bazjan, hope you have had the battery checked.
Thanks to Bazjan,Peter, Gareth, Len, Bill, for coming along to support The Cherry Festival at Brogdale. Hard work on a very sunny day, but at least the wind stayed all day, and the lifter delta stayed in the sky to enable the Teddy Bear Parachuting to be available except on a few small occassions when it lost the wind/thermals, but with a bit of persuading at least the new Skybums Mega Delta did its job.
Unusually for this event, we were kept busy for majority of the day, even if at times some of the children, had their bears repeatedly parachuted. No lost bears even if one or two tried to escape.
The children loved the parachuting and most parents appreciated the TBP, not rushing their child away, and contributed donations to our pot for Slideaway.
The intrepid Bears did well for Slideaway on Sunday - their collecting pot when counted had just over £110 in it. I have banked £107 and put the remainder back in order to make a good sound when next it is shaken.
Many thanks to the generous families for their donations.
