Sunday I plan to cut the lawn and wander down to the Thames to see what is going
on. Not a lot probably but next Sunday things should be much more lively; the Erith
Riverside Festival is back providing free entertainment almost on my doorstep.
The organisers have done battle with Bexley council and overcome all the obstacles. Looking back at some old emails I see that hasn’t always been the case.
2011 should have been the Festival’s 20th anniversary but it wasn’t to be. My email collection refers to “extortionate fees” and “Bexley council regards this as a cash cow” and the event had to be cancelled thanks to Bexley council’s intransigence. The organisers deserve your support this year.
