• Why Faversham?

    Faversham is in the heart of Kent’s garden of England. The Faversham Food Festival is run annually to celebrate its fine locally produced food and drink.

This year’s Sausage Trail was reduced to 4 entrants at rather late notice (and the tickets were reduced in price to reflect that !) … but nonetheless, we soldiered on with stiff upper lips … except when munching sausages, of course!
