We love local events. Getting involved in something that benefits the local community is right up our street.
Crawley, a village on the outskirts of Winchester was looking to raise money to update their Cricket Pavilion and Crawleyfest was born!
A mix of local food, craft and music it was set to be a fun filled day for the whole family to enjoy.
We were up early (as always for these sorts of events) and got the van packed and ready to go. Arriving to a rather impressive entrance for a small scale festival.
On the menu we had:
* Lemon and Poppy Seed Drizzle Cake * Coffee and Walnut Cake * Chocolate Brownies (including a Gluten Free version) * Rocky Road * Chocolate Nostalgia Cake * Mini Victoria Sponges * Chocolate Cookies * English Madeleines * Peanut Butter Goo Bar * Cherry Cake
Our best seller of the day had to be the Coffee + Walnut Cake, closely followed by the monstrous Peanut Butter Goo Bar. Everyone seems to love to the challenge a chunk of Peanut Butter Goo Bar represents. We also had some repeat customers for our delicious Chocolate Brownies (you know who you are ;)). Always brings a smile to our face when people come back for more.
By 8pm the sun was nearly down and it was time to think about heading home. We were plugged into the mains, but not with our C-Form plug so without electric powering our on board circuits we were plunged into darkness when the sun set.
We packed up some boxes of leftover cake for the Winchester Night Shelter, and set off home with our lights on. It’s cliched to say, but where did Summer go?
If you find out, let us know…

p.s. There was a nice follow up in the Hampshire Chronicle – we finally made it into the papers with our beautiful van 🙂
