May Day 2019 celebration
We crowned Amelie Moore as May Queen. She graced us with a welcome poem, which she had written with Joe Skelton. And then Friday Club opened celebrations with a fantastic, high-energy dance – very loosely inspired by the May Pole tradition. We carried our new queen around the wood to bless Under Oak bunkhouse; tree saplings in the Lower Paddock; Jake’s new growing area; volunteer huts; Simon Page’s new sculpture and, of course, the new toilets. There was a lot to celebrate. And we did. A very fun ceilidh and delicious Old Tree bar. Everyone brought food. And we had music into the – well not very late- hours.
