Two ladies to star on BBC2 next Tuesday
Edith May Trading Company has let us know that she will be starring in a television programme next week, together with Lady of the Lea.
The programme is on BBC2 on Tuesday 17 April, at 8.00pm, and is called “Our Food”. It’s a series, and this particular edition features Kent, and will tell how Thames sailing barges used to take fruit to London. It was filmed aboard Lady of the Lea, with what is described as “a special guest appearance from Edith May”. Can’t wait to see them both.
