A merry Mayday dance around Watermill bamboo

Blog bamboo2Our friend Paul Fowler, who lives in a farm in the hills near us, is always helping out with exciting projects for the children of the area. And he often has calls on our bamboo for the children to build things in these projects (like a working trebuchet at a recent festa).

Those of you who have been to the Watermill will know that, thanks to the bamboozery (you have shrubs in a shrubbery, so bamboo in a bamboozery), we are ‘long’ on bamboo and always happy to help. The last ‘Mayday’ call from Paul was just before… Mayday!

Paul wanted the kids to make – and dance round – a traditional English maypole. So some more of our bamboo was called for. You can see the end result above – and here’s a picture of the happy Mayday dance.Blog bamboo 1

A real pleasure to help, Paul — and a happy Rites of Spring to everyone!
