Civic Saturday

It has been a long day today, this morning we went to the Mayor of Caerphilly’s Civic Service, A civic service is a church service in which the new mayor is blessed and god is asked to bless the works of the council, its officers and its Mayor, they are often a fancy to do with the good and great of the neighbouring counties in attendance. Jessica’s will be next Sunday, however today’s was a lovely affair taking place at St Sannan’s Church in Bedwellty and unlike some of the civic services I’ve attended was upbeat with a very positive message. After the service there was a reception at Caerphilly Council’s swanky new office outside Ystrad Mynach, however we had to leave after a very short time to head to the next thing.

After we picked up Marianna from her grandmother’s house we headed to Pontypool for their big “Party In The Park”, after handing out some stickers to the participants of the costume parade and coaxing Marianna away from all the stalls and entertainment we were off again, but this time headed to Henllys Village Fete.

While we were there, in spite of the heat, we had a lovely time, Marianna was spoilt rotten, getting her face painted with glitter, a new ball, a handbag, a custom made headband. After a refreshing drink and a sit down we came home to some Chinese take out and a nice relaxing chill out on the sofa.
