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.
