Foodies Festival Blackheath PICTURES

What a weekend. I think these pictures speak for themselves and how much fun we all had at Foodies Blackheath. Day One came with a Wimbledon theme brought by Lorna Robertson and Nicola Milbank.

Foodies Festival is in Birmingham this Weekend!

Good afternoon, you gorgeous lot! How have we all been coping with this crazy heatwave?

My initial thought was to delay or cancel this cheery post but I cannot do that; I cannot condone any change in behaviour, attitude, or routine in the face of acts of terrorism. My thoughts are with all affected – the bereaved, the injured, … Read More
