Photos from the Bike and Kite Festival

Taken with the horrible camera phone as usual I’m afraid, but they should give you an idea. Sunday seemed to be the best day weather-wise, but there were fewer people than I had imagined there would be.

The Bugle was delighted to get his bike fixed up by the Bike Doctors (I think her name was Betty – thanks again!). It’s a really useful, free service, so a quick plug to Cycle Training who provided it.

Whirling Kites!

Some expert kite flyers on the heath. Must get a better cameraphone!

If you’re going to the kite festival…

Herbal Haven

Make sure you check out the Herbal Haven stall at the Bike and Kite Festival today – they seem to have loads of unusual herbs for planting, and they’re cheaper than the ones in the Blackheath Farmers Market. Most of them were only £1 each, and the lady seemed to know a lot about how to look after them. So maybe the Bugle’s Basil will finally last more than a couple of weeks…

The stall is near the refreshment stands towards the Greenwich end of the heath.

I’ll put a photo up here soon, along with some videos of the kites whirling around!
