Flyer Page 1 Flyer Page 2 Original Event Information

A big thank you to all those who came and worked, played, and supported the work week and May Day celebrations.

We've received messages from many who came saying how much they enjoyed the event and had a great time. After all the work we put in, by the weekend, many of us had run out of steam but we rallied, and there was plenty of celebration.

The procession to the hill fort with our beautiful fairy may queen and all the children with brightly coloured wings was beautiful despite the intermittent rain showers. The maypole dance was a fun experience and there was much laughter and merriment in the air.

Thanks to Lilian Silver Birch for the reading of the story of the maypole and for all her musical poetic input and splendid energy.

Another big thanks to Alastair Macintosh who's talk exemplified the meaning of what we were celebrating. His spoke of the importance of retrieving our cultural heritage and rekindling the sacred spiritual fire that warms the hearts of all our communities.

We would also like to thank Jean Noble for all the wonderful bread.

The work week was a huge success with a huge thanks to Banjo Bill Lloyd without whom much less than half of the work done could have been accomplished. With the assistance of Bill's quad bike and winch and his endless energy and motivation we were able to clear wind-blown trees and open up tracks to enable quad access. This helped tremendously in getting all the abandoned clutter removed from the woodland. Another big thanks to Bill for his musical entertainment throughout the entire event. We managed to record some of his performace, which will be added to the site shortly.

There is still much to be done here but we made a huge headway during this week. Thank you, thank you to all the wonderful people who brought beautiful positive energy, music, laughter and all those who worked wholeheartedly and continuously over the week and to the children and crafty folk who made our splendid fairy may queen and help to weave the magic of the event.

Pictures from the event are coming soon. Anyone who has pictures they would like to share, please send them the webmaster.
