Wanstead Festival in pictures (and a pledge)

Paddy Fantastic tweets:  “Would not be a fete without one” (pictured below).

And finally, a promise from Wansteadium. Dodging falling conkers turned into a sport of its own thanks to the gusty conditions, leading Wansteadium to conclude that what was missing was a new old tradition of conker-playing on Wanstead Festival day. Wansteadium hereby pledges to campaign for – and support  – an inaugural health-and-safety-compliant Christchurch Green Conker Tournament next year. We’ll buy the string.
