This year for May Day we will be celebrating nettles!
Join us to celebrate the common stinging nettle - find out how they are beneficial to our health, about the wildlife they support, and how they can be used to make clothes, beer and more!

Having a clear out this spring?
If you've got some clothes that you don't wear/need anymore then why not bring them along to the clothes swap event?...they might be just the thing that someone else is looking for, and you could find something new for yourself there too!

What is an Equinox?
An equinox is an astronomical event in which the plane of Earth's equator passes through the center of the Sun, which occurs twice each year, around 20 March and 23 September. On an equinox, day and night are of approximately equal duration all over the planet. The name is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because at the equinox the night and day are nearly equally long.

People gathered around the fire to sing songs led by the Castle Choir whilst children made recycled musical instruments and helped to hang cider soaked toast in the apple trees for birds. A Wassail is a traditional celebration of orchards, the rituals performed help to ensure a good and plentiful harvest for the coming year.
