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.
