One of the most successful Pilton Green Man Days of all times took place on Saturday 18th July 2015 as a result of fantastic weather, great stalls and activities, all sorts of lovely food, brilliant music and singing, a big Parade with hundreds of followers, an emotional Pageant, interesting exhibitions and displays, refreshing drinks and ice creams, beautiful flowers, great street entertainers, loads of young people and familes with small children and grandparents, and even a visit from the Search & Rescue helicopter, sadly for the very last time. It was a real family day out with Rotary Gardens like a giant picnic and Pilton Street buzzing with stalls and music. Brilliant.
And on the way up the Street, the Parade stopped to salute Albert Linacre, a man who has contributed so much over the decades to making Pilton Green Man Day what it is today. He has not been at all well lately.
Edward III, who bestowed the right to an annual market on Pilton back in the 14th Century, would have been proud.
