Beltane 2015

As well as the fourth day of the cob build, a manic day's veg harvesting, and the first full day for our new flock of young chickens to settle into their new home, Thursday 30th April saw the community farm's fifth annual maypole dance and Beltane celebration, in what has become a recent community tradition.

This year saw the largest turn-out of people yet, braving the strong icy wind that always seems to blow, and also the first known bagpipes to have graced the farm. Many thanks to the musicians for coming along and playing for the maypole dances.

As the daylight waned we built up the fire and leapt through the flames to welcome in the new season. Beltane also marked the first anniversary of Pete and Nikki joining the community farm team, as live-in WWOOF hosts and community farm growers, and we'd like to thank them heartily for twelve months of hard work and valuable input - thank you both!!
