Market on the Move

The Dargle Local Market has moved along the road to the Lion’s River Polo Club in search of shelter and extra space (in case it grows).

Besides the venue (and the seasonal veggies which change every month, obviously), all the old favourites were there.

Lots of people brought along their dogs.  Eidin reckons we should rename it ‘ The Dogle Market’ saying “Wildly diverse dogs of the Dargle dragged their owners out in force…  Irish terriers, Italian greyhounds, Boerbuls, Dachshunds, Jack Russells, Africanis, King Charles Spaniels, Poodles and more…very social and no dog fights were noticed!”

Tina and Nicky helped paint the WELCOME sign (and sold colourful whirly things)

Lucinda made focaccia and prepared hummus on the Dennis the Dover Stove and enjoyed herself so much that she,Tom and Emily were the last to leave.  “The market was a buzz, wasn’t it?” said Gilly.  See you on Sunday 2 March!

      1. Only half-serious!
        If I ever do add a book about our time at The Old Camp to my list, though, I would love to have it available there. Trouble is, I would probably be sued left, right and centre because I wouldn ‘t be able to say that any of it was fiction …

  1. I will make more effort to be there, certainly now to May… Just wondering if I am to be thrust into the wilderness as usual or is there any space for me nearer the others… Thanks. Dean de Chazal
