Socials/Ceilidhs with live music in Hall on  site.  Weekend to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.  Hoping for great weather we could see decorated units around the site along the red, white & blue theme or perhaps bring out any pennon displays.  Our traditional 3 ceilidhs are planned for Thurs, Fri and Sat evenings. Initial plans are for a street party on Friday teatime (bring food to share or if you prefer just come and join in with your own picnic) and a pre-ceilidh barbeque on Saturday.  Hopefully we can  eat out in the fresh air unless the weather dictates the need to take cover indoors!  Please come prepared with any outdoor/indoor games to add to the fun of the meet.
