On February 2nd we’ll be halfway between the Winter and Spring solstices. Our ancestors celebrated the Imbolc, which later became known as Candlemas and the AIA will have a celebration this Sunday at 4pm at Dreel Halls with a Sundowner Supper. This will be a simple event with Mulled Wine and soft drinks, a light supper and plenty of candles. There will be some readings and stories by some of our supper guests and anyone can bring along a piece to read about the coming of Spring or Candlemas. Our last Candlemas was a lovely event and we hope this will be too. Please see the AIA website events page for details and let Elizabeth at the Community Kist know so she can get an idea of numbers.
We’re pleased to have our Hall used more and welcome people into its space. There’s something on nearly every day now and another 40th birthday was celebrated at the weekend. There was a bit of tidying up of flower pots this weekend and hopefully more will be done before the next blast of winter descends.
