Spring into Lymington wet but spirits high

Easter Sunday's Spring into Lymington was not to be deterred by a bit of rain...well in the end it was quite a lot of rain but spirits were high, camaraderie to the fore and we had an enormous sense of a confident town filled with capable, generous people.  Many people turned out to support the event, and the overall message from all was despite the weather it was great, another time with good weather it would be fantastic!  Gazebos and a variety of other mobile shelters enabled most people to take refuge from the worst of the weather - and being huddled together made for a good opoprtunity to strike up conversation with people you didn't know before!


I particularly enjoyed Ian Halliday's seriously high quality renditions of some of old favourite songs - in kinder conditions we would surely all have been bopping (and even in the rain a little jigging was irresistible!)  ianhalliday spring into lymington_180.jpg - 25.66 KB

Some powerful messages were being communicated too which will become more visible in coming weeks.

The momentum towards Dementia Friendly Lymington is beginning to take shape, much more to come on that subject with the build up to Dementia Awareness Week 18-24 May.  

Trudi Lloyd Williams of Lymington Mosaic fame, has launched a new initiative which combines recycling with the current trend for making your own...in this case it's making your shopping bags, which you could do today  under her watchful eye on beautiful vintage sewing machines.  And very lovely bags they are too!IMG_20140420_120656.jpg - 24.96 KB


Big congratulations Ricky and his team for the initiative and determination to mount this new event for Lymington, which in principle has proved a big success.  A word too for the wonderful venue of Grove Gardens - a little oasis close to the centre of Lymington, which many more will now know to re-visit!
