The club held a free stall on 17 & 18 Aug at this large community event with many large marquees over a wide area plus all of the individual group gazebos. Thanks to Verna, Yasmin for providing the transport, their gazebo and helping to cover the stall until the end, also Bruce for giving us a seat! We gave out a lot of general vegan information to the public in the absence of any other related stall. The response was very positive if not sales of kit or books.
The Umbrella Fair was held on the Racecourse (Park) near the town centre also the venue of the weekly Northampton Park Run so was encouraged by Bruce Lovell & Verna Burgess to run it prior to setting up. The Fair did not start until noon. We were also joined by Tim Williams, only his 2nd event. Bruce gave another very impressive performance wearing the Vegan Runners vest , finishing 3rd in 17.07 (Sen 78.58%) and a course PB. I took it leisurely at the start with Verna and gradually increased the tempo finishing in 22.22 (V50, 66.99%) with Verna 23.38 (V45, 70.10%) and Tim Williams 24.50 (V40, 56.24%).
