May Bank Holiday Barn Dance

Bishopswood village, which is the next village to us, organised a barn dance for the May Bank Holiday. There was a ceilidh band for the occasion and tickets included a generous Ploughman’s supper and apple pie.  It was well attended by locals from the surrounding villages and although some of the dances tied us in knots, especially one called “wringing the dish cloth”, we greatly enjoyed ourselves.

They are trying to make this an annual event now, which is a good idea as it is popular.  It is important to support events in the local community otherwise these things don’t happen!!  We also sometimes go to Churchinford village hall for barn dancing on a Tuesday evening which is a regular session but they don’t get so many people there as at this one.

Jubilee celebrations part 4 – barn dance

On Monday evening the villagers of Bishopswood and Buckland St Mary got together for a barn dance in the village hall.  We  had a band called “Trefellas” who played celtic type music and a caller who took us all through the dance moves.  Lots of people turned out and most people joined in the dancing.  It was a great community event, getting people to mix together and generate community spirit.

The Bishopswood Ladies prepared a delicious spread of food.  There was a ploughmans with lots of salad and for dessert apple pie or trifle.  After an hour’s break for the food, we continued with the dancing.  Lots of fun as people got in a muddle and arms and legs went all over the place!!

It was so popular that again people want it to become an annual event, so what started as jubilee celebrations could become part of the tradition in these villages.
