This weekend we were at Market on the Green in Beckenham, Kent, an event organised by Copers Cope Area Residents Association. It was our first ever outdoor event and chance to test drive the new gazebo. My first panic came on Friday night when I realised our pitch was on hardstanding not grass - perfect as far as exhibiting glass is concerned, nothing worse than a wobbly table but I didn't have any weights to hold the gazebo down. Luckily our neighbours came to the rescue with the loan of some weights.
Then we had 'technical issues' connecting to our card payment system and had to drag our technical expert (youngest son) out to solve the problem. However, despite some minor stress we had a fantastic day, the sun shone and was a great mix of stallholders and entertainment. The Market is in a perfect location and very well organised, we hope to back again later in the year.
