Gala day

Today's Gala day was very enjoyable, despite the dodgy weather.  A great barbeque - which wafted its inviting smells around the village long before arrival, a happy atmosphere with loads of stalls and competions to attract the pocket money of  both young and old. A castle for bouncing, a calf for naming, trained dogs to be admired, ginger cats to be cuddled, plants to purchase, coconuts to be shyed (if that's how you spell it?), toms to be bola'd , faces to be painted, and a host of other delights to be sampled. The whole thing rounded off by excellent music from the school orchestra - whose reditions in the past  I've found challenging but today were great. Well done one and all!
