RIDINGS - EASTER AT EPWORTH - 14TH TO 17TH APRIL 2006

We returned to the Ridings for Easter at Epworth, a mixed bag weather wise but good fun with lots going on, music, song, dance, craft - everything you'd expect at Easter. I also had a lovely drive over the "Cat and Fiddle" to Macclesfield to attend NW AGM on the Saturday.

RIDINGS AGM - COPLEY CC, NEAR HALIFAX - 24TH TO 26TH MARCH 2006

It was a wet weekend but plenty of time to explore Halifax (the Piece Hall was very interesting with it’s farmer’s market and numerous little shops) and also to take a walk along the canal tow path, adjacent to the site and visit Sowerby Bridge.

WESSEX AGM, FORT WIDLEY, COSHAM, PORTSMOUTH - 7TH TO 9TH APRIL 2006

It was a beautiful sunny weekend but the wind nearly cut us all in half. The site is situated within the grounds of an 1860’s Fort, itself a very interesting complex. There are some lovely walks and views from this site, worth another visit sometime but watch the gate posts on the way in!

NORTH CENTRAL YOUTH FOLK ROCK WEEKEND AT CAULDON LOWE - 15TH - 17TH JULY

Folk Rock – Thanks to North Central for offering Cauldon Lowe as the venue, Even though numbers were down, the weekend went very well and included lots of music practice, a good singaround on the Friday night and a mass Barbeque on the Saturday afternoon. Not too full to dance though, a really lively dance on Saturday with an acoustic play around on Sunday to wind down. Thanks to everyone who attended and Steve for organising the weekend.

EAST MIDLANDS MEET AT RISLEY - 7TH - 12TH JULY

Risley – Another quiet site on a farm near to Derby and the M1 but with a barn on site available all day, Well, when it’s as hot a weekend as this was, a cool stone built barn is perfect. This was a craft weekend with over 30 units there and something to do or look at all day. Combine this with local fish and chips delivered to the site and at least two buckets of Strawberries for pudding on the Saturday – brilliant.

WESSEX MEET AT BOTLEY - 30TH JUNE - 4TH JULY

Botley – As you can see, we spent a great day out at the Festival of the Sea in Portsmouth Docks. Lovely quiet site behind a farm in the countryside but only a few minutes from the M27, it might have been a long drive from Derbyshire but well worth the effort.
