Leesland Parkfest 2014

Leesland Park is the local park to where I grew up, but back then it was overgrown allotments, which I loved, it was much better for making dens!! but it lovely now too with skate park, play park with flying fox, basketball court and a wild bit great for blackberry picking. Every September they have a small festival called Leesland Parkfest going on from midday till 11pm with live music (normally headlined by a great group called Kellys Tattoo but this year by Monkey Butlers) and stalls and attractions during the day. The last few years I have had a little stall and I thought I would give running a childrens workshop a go but it didn’t get many takers but I had fun making these cardboard brooches 🙂

The park is full of wildlife and I see a lot of foxes and have seen a few badgers too. (not of the st. john variety 😀 )
