Over the 799th anniversary the annual Magna Carta day was celebrated in Egham along the High Street drawing a great crowd and plenty of stands.
Local police officers were on hand to support the fun and listen to the peoples priorities.
On Sunday down on the National Trust land there was a celebration with a giants picnic. The ‘giants’ were made by local school children who paraded them on the water meadows.
Up at the [ABA] Magna Carta memorial there was time for some relaxation and cloud watching.
Later in the week up at the Royal Holloway campus there were meetings to help arrange next years major celebrations and afterwards the Magna Carta lecture was presented in the Windsor buildings auditorium.
As you can see there will be some mechanising opportunities that King John , the barons and the commoners would have been stumped with if they had been given them
Yet the quilting was exquisite and will form the basis of an amazing quilted panel seven feet high and way longer….. Yes, Mr Lincoln has been quilted!
A great example of patience, teamwork and skill. Now that is worth celebrating.
