The summer season is about to begin here in South London (or Old North Surrey, if you prefer). That means Pimms, scones and more tea vicar, in some rather attractive squares and gardens.
I particularly recommend the North Lambeth Parish fete because the parish has been given permission by the Arcbishop of Canterbury to hold it in the Palace grounds, which are beautiful and not usually open to the public.
