Summer festivals

For our local party, summer is a busy time for putting on stalls at the local festivals. Things were a bit easier this year, the tory council has dropped the Croydon Summer Festival at Lloyd Park, and the Addiscombe Festival was cancelled due to heavy rain. The new Croydon Green Fair, organised by the industrious Andrew Dickinson, gives green groups, such as ours, a chance to get our message out there, especially as Croydon Summer Festival is no more.

For the fifth year running we were at the Thornton Heath Festival. This year, we were very close to main stage, which does no favours for my tinnitus!

As usual the Carshalton Environmental Fair was a great success for us. It takes all the activists in Sutton and Croydon Green Party to put this on.

Well done to everyone who has a helped on our stalls this year.

My favourite free festy is the Lambeth Country Show (over 2 days). This years headliner on Sunday was Dennis Bovall and his dub band, featuring amongst others Janet Kay. Have a listen to Silly Games.

Sadly I didn't spot the Lambeth Greens at the show, but I did spot the hilarious Lib Dem stall!!

Good way to raise money
