We gather here to remember old Edric, as you will all know doubt have heard by now that another peg has left, so the tent flap is fluttering in the breeze. Edric was a stalwart of our fairs, committed and dependable. Single handedly ensuring that all Reeth’s fairs ran smoothly. Edric knew how to sort out the drunks, ‘including you Tobias’. We will miss him greatly. So with the Bartle fair due next week I need to know who is willing to take up his mantle. The burden will be heavy. But. I know you will all help out Tobias as he take up this duty. Meeting closed.


Apologies for going slightly over the word limit today but each time I tried to cut the word count I ended up with a higher word count! In compensation I tried to create a link which would explain something about Reeth and it’s fairs. But it seems I have failed in this attempt!

The names used in this post are in no way linked to any living person or persons from the past, but are used in an attempt to reflect the historic use of names in Reeth.

    1. Oops! I mean Michael. You may edit my comment to reflect that. 😉 Sorry. I still like the story. You had me looking up Reeth.

      Shalom again,

      The slightly addled Rochelle

      1. Hi Rochelle, I get addled most days, glad you liked the story. Reeth once had a mock parliament of senior citizens. Sadly so far I have not been able to find any reference to this on the Internet. Mike

  1. Thanks for sharing. I would need to look up Reeth to have a better understanding and appreciation, but no problem with going over. It happens 🙂

    1. Reeth once had a mock parliament, a shelter where the senior citizens gathered to discuss local events. Sadly I have not as get managed to find any reference to it on the Internet. Mike

    1. Thank you Sandra, I found myself reacting too quickly to the prompt. It reminded me of an old photograph of a group of retired gents sitting discussing the weeks events in Reeth. Reeth for a long time was one of my favourite haunts. Mike

  2. No worries on the word count — you’ll be able to do it in 100 with your eyes closed one day and even more wonderful stories like this one will appear. I like the sorting out of the drunks. Great!
    Nice work, Michael! Keep going!

    1. I once had a picture of the men sitting on the bench, sadly I can now not locate it. I would have loved to post it alongside the article. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Mike
