It was all quiet in my small town garden at lunchtime today after the rain had stopped then I heard the sounds of a riot or maybe a procession. My hometown of Lewes goes in fro processions big time and they all go past my front door. Today it was the Lewes Moving On Parade when the local primary schools put on the carnival mood to say goodbye to all those children leaving to move onto to secondary education. A nice idea and one that was particularly lively this year. Good luck to all those children embarking on the next stage of their journey through Britain’s much troubled and politically manipulated education system.
It is all calm again outside in my garden but they’ll be another procession soon.
Here’s a snippet of the Moving on Parade as captured on my iPhone.
Meanwhile, I’m getting into gear for the imminent publication (in October) of my novel, Stephen Dearsley’s Summer Of Love, the story of a young fogey living in Brighton in 1967 who has a lot to learn when the flowering hippie counter culture changes him and the world around him.
