Fish n' Chips for St George by andycoleborn

Fish n' Chips for St George

We held a pensioners' party to mark St George's Day this afternoon. A traditional East End band played old favorites (think Chas & Dave!!!) and about 50 guests enjoyed a little dance and sing-a-long followed by a fish n' chip dinner.

I invited the local rag along as I knew a few politicians would be coming, and sure enough, a couple of Lib Dem councillors and two prospective Tory MPs showed up... Only ever see them at election time!!! Hmmm.....

The photographer from the paper clearly had a preset idea of what to take... She turned up, sat these three together, took a few snaps and was off to her next assignment... Staged, but it's a nice story and good publicity for work.

Having left early, I paid no attention to the train notice board, jumped on the first available train and ended up in Laindon, somewhere in mid-Essex! A one hour detour and I eventually made it home...

Glorious weather all week... going to continue over the weekend...hurray :-)
ha, love this! and you can't beat a nice bit of chas & dave!

What a great "picture within a picture"! The colors, the faces and the photographer in the ppicture add up to a great shot of your own!
