Festival in Temple Cowley next weekend

All right, all right: don’t get too excited. It’s not exactly Truck (or even last year’s anti-Truck, which was indeed out in Temple Cowley as the floods poured over Steventon). But the Elder Stubbs allotments are having their own festival on Saturday August 16.

Less of a music event and more of a jam-and-pickle one, there’s homegrown produce and refreshments on sale. As I don’t have an allotment there, my excuse for going will be helping with the Give Coal the Boot campaign. £1 entrance and funds go to (I think) local mental-health charity RESTORE.

Come forth, supporting conservation:
Make your boot-shaped silhouettes.
Then leave with fruits of preservation,
Jars of jam and ripe courgettes.

The new song of summer 2008. Goldrush would be proud.
