May fair

I arrived back across the Common from work on Monday to find that the May Fair has started setting up to open on Thursday. This is the first of three or four fairs that happen on Midsummer Common during the summer, and is relatively small. Historically, it causes far less trouble than the Midsummer Fair or the notorious Strawberry Fair (which has been cancelled this year amid controversy and rumous that revellers will descend upon the Common nonetheless).

But it remains to be seen how this one will affect us. It is our first big Common event since we moved to Cambridge, so fingers crossed there will be no trouble! For the larger ones, we will take the opportunity to move the boat out of town, but we have to be around this weekend for the Head of the Cam race that our rowing club is organising.
