May Festival


On the 12th of May there was an event called the maypole. This happened at cotton end village hall. The thing that happens is that people grab onto a pole with a ribbon and dance around the pole to try and make a pattern.

Back to the event I, Alex, arrived there at 10ish and saw everybody setting up stuff like calling ice cream vans and they were setting up go cart races. A bout half an hour later everyone started arriving. At 11.30 the dance started here is a view from one of the dancers.

Evelyn, the dancer, says, “We all collected the ribbons and got into a circle. Then Ashton started playing the music as we all started dancing around the pole. We heard people clapping to the beat of the music. When we stopped we took a break as the other people did the same dance.”
