Friends are important to us all, even more so in these strange times. A lady named Josephine Downer is trying to contact her old friends from Broadwindsor Primary School. They are Joy, Christine and Nigel HOLT. If anyone has any news or information, or indeed if the Holts see this post themselves – please contact Broadwindsor.org and we will reunite you 🙂
The Post Office Outreach services will be at the Comrades Hall from 10am – 12noon. Sorry! No teas or coffees will be served and social distancing will be practised.
Outside, there will be a sale of perennial plants from Val Lawrence who had been growing them for Broadwindsor’s Fun Day. (If the weather is inclement, plants will be in the main hall by the stage). #StaySafe
It’s the halfway point between the Spring equinox and Summer solstice. The word ‘Beltane‘ originates from the Celtic god Bel and the Gaelic word ‘teine’, which means fire. Beltane is a fire festival.
A time to give gratitude and thanks to the fertility of Spring, festivities start on the eve of May 1st with big beautiful bonfires representing life and honouring the sun. May 1st brings girls with flower crowns, dancing around the maypole – but there will be no such gatherings this year. Beltane is also considered a time when the veil between worlds is thin as with Samhain therefore, a magical and powerful time.
May Day is traditionally held on a Monday but will be put back to Friday 8 May 2020 to coincide with VE Day 75th anniversary celebrations.
