Follow the Deptford Jack

Summer is just around the corner, and today is May Day, so down in Deptford the Fowlers Troop will be parading a traditional start-of-summer Jack in the Green through the streets in a 1980s revival of an event performed until about 1906.

The Jack will visit the Dog and Bell, the Lord Hood, the Star and Garter, the Plume of Feathers and the Richard I in Greenwich, before finishing up at the Ashburnham Arms at around 5pm. For anyone who forgot to take today off work, please see last year's reminder and pay more attention next time.
