One Day One World Project: 12:00 to 13:00 hours

Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind has decided to run a different project over the next 24 weeks. To try to show what is happening in different parts of the world (if you all join in) at a particular time of day. This week is the start of the project and photos are required taken between 12 noon and 1:00 pm (1200 – 1300).

So, being as I am quite curious to see what everyone else is doing around the globe I decided to contribute a photo or two from Ludlow where, as it so happens, the May Fair is taking place. Each year the Castle Square and Mill Street are taken over by a travelling fun fair. Lots of noise and screams and smells of hot dogs, burgers and candy floss – well, no actually that last bit isn’t true – the candy floss is pre-made and sold in sealed plastic bags 😦

A note was posted through our letterbox last week:

“On Sunday 4th May 2014 at 11:30 am, the Mayor of Ludlow, Cllr Jim Smithers and members of the Ludlow Town Council will attend the May Fair Service lead by the Venerable Colin Williams accompanied by the Choir of St Laurence. This special service will take place with the congregation assembled in the  Dodgem Cars and around the exterior of the ride.”

Now this I had to see. So I duly popped up the street, camera in hand to see what was going on and these are the results of what was taking place in Ludlow at 12:00 on Sunday 4th May 2014. Everyone having a jolly good time it seems!

choiristersIf you would like to participate you have until next Saturday midnight to post a photo or write about what is happening in your part of the world between 12:00 – 13:00 this week.  I hope you’ll join in! See links above for more details.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Thanks for sharing your view of the May Fair! A special service in and around Dodgem cars has got to be one of the most unique things we will see this week. 🙂

    1. Unique, yes. Not an every day occurrence. When I read the note I immediately thought of your project 🙂 Next week could be fun too as it is the Spring Food Festival!

  2. What a great idea! I’ve just missed posting time but will tell you that between 12 and 1 we were loading up the car so my hubby can go fishing. I then settled down with my laptop and a sandwich to read the posts and comments that have been building up during the week. It is a lovely day here in the Cotswolds, but a bit breezy. Have a great time at the carnival!

      1. Oh great thanks x I will certainly give it a go.
        Ah, the fair looked like fun! Nice to know a blogger near me! I am in Cheltenham, I adore Ludlow but rarely get there.

  3. I never expected to see a church service and dodgem cars in the same sentence as long as I lived! Very amusing, and so quintessentially English in its absurdity. Makes me proud to be British! (Almost)
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. Too true! When I read the note I just had to go and take a look. I must have missed the actual service though, by the time I got up there they were all having jolly races on the dodgems!! Not sure I can keep up this eccentricity throughout the project though.

  4. Fun challenge. I used to love the dodgems but not when someone thought it was funny to slam into the back of mine!!

    1. No that wasn’t pleasant, but happened all too often to me as I was usually with one of my brothers and the other one would try and ram us!
