THIS WEEK: The May-Pole, The Solstice, Morris Dancing and of course the now famous, and completely exhausting, EU Hokey Cokey. For the last 10 days or so, we’ve been in, out then shaken all about. Jazz hands were added, then new directions and shapes, even the participants on each side changed; but, however exhilarating the movements, I’m afraid there is always an anti-climax when the choreography hasn’t got a strong, definitive end position. Unfortunately, no Tadaah, it’s all still a bit blurry round the edges. Still, in true British fashion, if something is going to happen in this country it’s going to be something completely out of the ordinary, something monumental and something that will have the rest of the world talking about us for years. We’re now really getting into all the fantastic summer sports events. Wimbledon is halfway through, the Rio Olympics are on their way and firstly we’ve got the finals of football’s European Cup.

LETTER OF THANKS: It was nice to get a letter of thanks from Maureen Ford and Jenny Brown, thanking me for assisting in making the Open Gardens on Sunday June 12 such a success. £2,200 was raised and will be contributed to much needed church funds. I’m sure they have thanked everyone, but we should also thank them for all the hard work they put into the organisation of the project, so thanks Maureen and Jenny. So many people have told me what a wonderful day they had in Rodmell and how impressed they were with the village and its wonderful gardens. Sadly, many people just whizz up and down the C7 but do not realise how beautiful all the villages along it are, as they don’t take time to stop and walk around them. People that do are amazed at their beauty and history.
