The Flower Pot 96 Sandling Rd, Maidstone ME14 2RJ

Stopped off at The Flower Pot in Maidstone en route to the Kent Show. Parking could be difficult but worth it. Loads of beer options and the menu was deceptive – it did not inspire but the food was very well done.

The staff was brilliant and genuinely interested in their beer. Must go back next time I am passing.

Kent County Show 7/8/9th July Detling Kent ME14 3JF

This was my first time at this show with several bodgers, Amy Leake, Mike Church, Mark Sidders with Steve Wrights’ chainsaw crew. They were en route to a huge Cherry tree that had blown down, bit of a windfall really!


Mike Church was not selling much so had plenty of time to make trugs.

Amy on the bowl lathe, fortunately it did not rain and the trees gave her plenty of shade – just as well since she left her shelter poles behind.


Steve Wright had plenty of interesting stuff for sale.

This stick maker has been attending for 33years!

This carver had his work cut out on this large commission.

Well this was a massive show and not the sort of event I normally go to. The main area was really an outdoor shopping centre. Thankfully we were all in the woods which gave us plenty of shade from the scorching sun.
