what turned out to be a stressful week it was so good to
get out to Broome Farm on Saturday evening to cover the
charity Ceilidh taking place there. These events are always
a lot of fun and I decided to make a night of it and camped
in the Old Orchard.
music was provided by the excellent Ceilidh band 'Skirrid'
who expertly called the moves and in no time at all had
the dance floor packed with people, all keen to join in
the dances. Even I got roped into a dance or two once I
had put the camera to bed and I really had a great time.
Shrieks of laughter ran through the barn as some of the
dancers got their moves confused but under the guidance
of the caller, it wasn't long before they all got the hang
of things. Hunger and thirst were cured by some of the fantastic
food, cider and perry that were available throughout the
event and a great night was had by all.
Ceilidh was held to raise funds for one of Broome
Farm and Ross
Cider & Perry Co.'s three chosen charities for this
year which are: The Peterstow Ladies Race for Life Challenge,
Tamwen and a Bee Keeping charity which encourages people
in poorer countries to use bees as a means of income. Many
charities have benefited greatly thanks to events held up
at the farm.
am currently looking forward to the Broome Farm Cider Festival
which will take place on 2nd, 3rd and 4th September. For
