Well this initiative by the “Popes of TW” is a really simple and great idea. Nick & Ingrid saw something similar whilst on holiday in the US and thought it would translate well to the their local community in Tunbridge Wells.
The have tirelessly put together a simple website where an “X” marks the sellers pitches and allowed now some 100 plus to easily sign up and take part. They have both leaflet dropped the town and distributed some 10,000 of them to spread the word and now with just a few days to go there is much excitement and anticipation.
I felt I somehow had to take part in this and am pleased to say I will be joining up with a couple of pals on their pitch at TN1 1JP where I will rock up with my paella kit and cook a fresh big pan of the stuff and serve up to anyone who fancies a refuel whilst they browse the assorted sellers stalls.
The pan holds circa 40 portions so it will be very much a first come first served situation and all profits from the sales will be donated to local charities. I will even take payment with a credit card if you have used up all your cash on other sellers stalls so no excuses on not selling out.
Lets hope the weather stays fine and warm and this will become very much an annual community event for the town. Well done to Ingrid & Nick for such sterling work… now just form an orderly queue for your paellas!
Well following on from a highly entertaining and fascinating visit to the House of Commons organised for the Tunbridge Well Twitter group Twuttle I felt we should have another competition.
So do check out our competition page for the rather reflective photo of one of the other attendees admiring the Diamond Jubilee stained glass window. It was donated to Her Majesty by the MP’s and is about to be installed in the Palace of Westminster.
The best submitted caption has a chance to win two places to our More Chinese Memories dinner on Friday 14th September just a week away!
I know this is generous of us but it was an inspiring visit to the seat of government that was hosted by Tunbridge Wells MP Greg Clarke so we thought what better way to celebrate and say thanks!
Go on have a go and get your thinking caps on!
