Walking in the Rain

Left Westminster early so that I could attend the LEAF event at Leckford. The Leckford Estate is, in effect, "The Waitrose Farm".
The Leckford Estate is now a show farm for LEAF - which aims to strike a balance between sustainability, profitability and being environmetally friendly and this achievement was being celebrated. Lord Selborne did the honours and then we all trekked off on a walk around the estate.
I was inappropriately dressed (suit, pale mac)- being on a tight timetable from London but as the boot of my car contains an emergency kit - including wellies - I didn't suffer too much. Once a Girl Guide always a Girl Guide.. Still, I think the guests who were constituents appreciated the slightly bizarre sight.
