to the Heath to attend.
It set me thinking about my childhood days when the village Independent co-educational
Fete, as I suppose it was called in the '50s, was held on a day school and nursery
large field at the rear of the house owned by Mr & Mrs Pyle for 2 - 11 year olds
at the start of the Matching Road.
As I went to Waterside School in Bishop's Stortford, I was
friends with another pupil, Barry Pyle, & excitement always
mounted approaching the event as a LARGE slide was
constructed in the field with lengths of scaffolding, to be used
with doormats to hurtle to the bottom, which seemed a long
way down in those days. Knowing Barry, we were always able
to test it out incessantly beforehand, & for a couple of days
after the fete - free of charge!!!!!!!
Other attractions on the day I remember were Guess the
weight of the Cake; Bowling for a Pig (does this still happen
anywere, or is it now not acceptable for various reasons?).
One year, GREAT excitement was caused by a visit in the
evening of the event by The Don Cossack Riders, who hurtled
up & down the field on horseback performing many acrobatic
& athletic movements, such as picking up handerchiefs from the
ground as they hurtled past at speed! Down here in our albeit
lovely village is the annual plastic duckrace in the River
