Wheelbarrow Festival 2015

Taste of LincolnshireNot just the contents of this ‘Tastes of Lincolnshire’ entry, but the barrow itself was created by David Blakey and Colin Howsam. This was judged the winner by Amanda White of Look North at the annual Wheelbarrow Festival in Barrow-upon-Humber.The wine, by the way, flows continually. If only that was so in life.  Runner up was this stunning fruit and veg barrow: all the items hand-knitted!  Knitted vegJohn & Marilyn Burton and Sue and Charlie Stephenson created this amazing entry.  In all there were over 90 barrows and more than a dozen open gardens. In spite of a gusty wind (which demolished the buskers’ gazebo while they were playing), Saturday was fine and Sunday even better. Punch and Judy, Morris dancers and the Barrow Band provided additional entertainment. A lovely weekend with the barrows of Barrow!
