Last week Hannah and I joined the Morte ranger team to help out with the Woolacombe and Mortehoe Jubilee celebrations. On the Monday night the rangers lit one of the many beacons in the country on Potters Hill, 60 people turned out to see it which was great.
Tuesday was a little damp but the celebrations continued anyway with a few venue alterations. In the morning at Morthoe village hall we enjoyed great burgers and puddings served up by the local community before heading down to Woolacombe where the day finished with a fete and live music on the field.
We ran a cocunut shy and welly wanging stand which both went down well with visitors, plenty of lucky people went home with a coconut and the people with the highest score in each welly wanging category won a prize a the end of the day. The winners of the under 11 and 12 -16 categories were Sol Hyde, Luke de Waal and Hannah Cooney, they each took home a beach towel and a mouse mat. The best adult welly wang was Alan with 120 points and he won a voucher for Watersmeet house and tea-garden.
Thanks to everyone came and took part in our activities, we raised over £150 for our conservation work.
