    It was a wonderful day! Highlights for me included Marcus Coates and Amy Feneck double hoola hooping, the chef explaining why wild salmon are so much better as he handled it and then cut it’s head off, the cake, funked up brass, impromtu foot massage and the brilliant cyclists especially the tiny ones.
