All week the forecast had been showing yellow alerts for rain in the south west and sure enough as Saturday dawned, the view from Updown Cottage disappeared as the cloud closed in. Disappointing for the Festival but not unexpected. A few spots of rain fell and we dodged them as we ran around Shaftesbury asking if traders would display our ‘Open House’ poster. As always, we were met by nothing but smiles and uplifting ‘only too pleased to help’ attitudes.
Within an hour though, the sun was shining, the town was buzzing and locals and visitors were picnicking on the irresistible Dorset produce for sale on Park Walk, with this view!
