Lode with Longmeadow Jubilee Fun Day

Broughton Hall, 2pm, Sunday 9th June 2002.

An afternoon of family fun including fancy dress (2:15pm), games and races (2:30 to 4pm), children's tea party (4pm) and duck race on the Lode (4:30pm) - buy a duck and watch it race down the Lode from the Mill to the Drover Bridge.

The start of the day - before the rain

A wet June day, but much enjoyed by all who braved the rain.
