This year LBCE (Laneshaw Bridge Community Enterprise) attended the village’s fantastic fair – ‘Party in the Park’. Oli is working with LBCE to run a photography class in the village so we went along for the day for some photo fun and to display some of our work. The theme was ‘Best of British’ and there was plenty of fun and games to be had for all. Thankfully the weather wasn’t ‘typically-British’ – it was an absolute scorcher, so there was a fabulous turn-out and thoroughly relaxed feel to the day as people rolled out blankets on the grass, enjoyed the entertainment and soaked up the sun!
The Alma Inn sponsored a Bake-Off which was a huge success with some incredible cake entries! They also provided lots of free cupcakes for everyone to enjoy – of course we had to sample them… they were delicious!
As well as photographing the event in our Reportage style we decided to have a bit of fun with a gazebo which we styled with some lovely accessories and brought in some vintage props for people to have a giggle with.
It was great to see everyone getting involved with our photo tent, from kids and families to local councillors; Dorothy Lord, Paul White, James Starkie, Christian Wakeford and Oli’s mum, Margaret Foxley as well as local MP Andrew Stephenson. Oli’s dad, Paul Foxley – or Foxley Senior as I like to call him was also filming the day in his reportage style, can’t wait to see the footage! Great people, great food, sunshine and live music – we had so much fun!
