We all had a good time in Hedge End Carnival last Saturday despite the Rain perhaps we should have expected it doing Noah’s Ark.
A Big thank you to Southampton and District Transport Heritage Trust who supplied us with the bus and the Driver and did not mind us sticking pictures on the windows. Thank you to everyone who took part or helped in anyway to make the day possible.
We had Mr and Mrs Noah (Pictured above) in the Bus and lots and lots of different Animals. It was noted that Mrs Noah had a vegetarian cook book so the animals should have been safe. The Animals included a Sheep, Tiger, Monkey, Rabbit, Donkey, Penguin, and many others. We even had the bird that Noah sent out when the Flood water had gone down complete with the olive branch it came back with.
Those of us who did not take part in the parade served tea, Coffee, squash and Cakes to anyone who was passing by and wished to sit down. We enjoyed many interesting conversations with those people including sharing memories that people had of times in our Church.
It was requested by some of our fellow paraders that we set our entry in the desert next year to guarantee no rain. If you can think of an appropriate biblical story do let us know.
