An excellent first day of the Faversham Transport Weekend, which saw the town hosting all manner of vintage vehicles for enthusiasts of historic transport.
Whilst tomorrow brings vintage cars, today was all about buses, with many standing proud throughout the centre of town whilst others were fulfilling usual bus-route commitments to far-flung Challock and the like. The Alexander Centre is currently hosting a photographic display as part of the weekend as well as a collection of bicycles under the title ‘From Boneshaker to BMX.’ As usual, many of the town’s window-displays have responded to the occasion, including that in the window of The Disgruntled Cat, upon whom you can always rely for an eye-catching adornment to the town.
Further up Abbey Street, there’s also an opportunity to learn about the Swing the Bridge campaign at the stall outside no. 92, where you can find out more about this crucial project to raise funds for the installation of a swing-bridge to re-vitalise Faversham Creek Basin and the wider local community.
Street entertainment includes live music and Punch & Judy; and there’s plenty more to enjoy tomorrow too. An historic market town with a rich heritage, Faversham certainly knows how to celebrate history. Catch it if you can.
