Hougham quilt festival

On Sunday, I enjoyed a great day out at Church Hougham. The whole village got together and organised an amazing quilt festival - with a dog show thrown in. The quilts made by the very dedicated quilters were all laid out in the church. It looked stunning. Angie Buhlman (pictured), one of the quilters, showed me around. Angie has just made the amazing black quilt shown above us to pioneer a different style.

There was also a dog show and Charlotte and our dog Star managed to win a prize!

Church Hougham and West Hougham are two villages between Dover and Capel-le-Ferne which share a parish council. They came together to put the festival on. It was a great success - almost every garden was selling something or taking part in some way. I also picked up some great marmalade and honey made in the village. Congratulations to all the organisers and the villages who made it such a great day and showcased what must be one of the strongest communities anywhere in the land.
