Thread Name: Nick Dow to paint Sowerby Bridge Rushcart
Subject: RE: Nick Dow to paint Sowerby Bridge Rushcart
Sowerby Bridge is a town.
Churches used to have rushes on their floors, and once a year or so, parishioners would replace the rushes. In time, music and fun were added to the activity to make a festival.
The rushes were carried to the church in a rushcart, which naturally has to be decorated. Half the fun of a festival is decorating things.
Nick, good luck with your pinstriping.
