Good weather and relaxation at the Jericho Street Fair

Posted - June 11, 2017

A breezy day sent the leaflets fluttering, but thousands of people thronged Canal Street to check out the multiple offerings, from teapots to toys to Tibetan cuisine. Music during the day came from the Jericho Singers, and well into the evening from the bands at the Bookbinders. Many thanks to local businesses who provided raffle prizes: Branca, the Coop, Cycle Centre, Jericho Tavern, Jude the Obscure, Londis, Loch Fyne, Mezzeto Mezze, and Walton Street Cycles.
