Cafe @ Create It Kent

Although we did have a lot of seating and tables at Create It Kent it just wasn't enough
So we have arranged for extra to be brought in for next year.

As you can see from these photos the hall was quite large and over the period of 4 days I walked more than 40 miles going up and down these 2 halls.

We do love organising these events but it is so much hard work, 
and I'm not sure when my feet will recover.
