I know you've only just finished with Hogswatch, but would someone let me know when the Spring Fling is, otherwise my daughter might not have a dog-sitter!!!

Thanks Demdike. Definition of Speing anyone? Sorry for the typo. It should of course have been "spring".

I'm definitely going to try and come to Spring Fling in 2014, haven't made it down that time of year before, but given how nice Wincanton is in November I'm sure it's even more pleasant in May.

I don't know about that. This year spring - speing? - didn't happen until about June. The Clerk of the Weather got up late for 2013. He thought it was January in March (and April) and still hasn't caught up. We only just finished September weather, and the last of the leaves came off the trees last week!!!! It's Christmas next week for gods' sake! If the weather stays like this we'll be having February weather in May next year. But hey! Come and play, there's some great hills to toboggan down on tea trays. And Mr Dibbler can sell ice crampons for your boots. :D

Hey people!
I can now say that Uncle B asked me to do the storytelling again, Friday night of Spring Fling - but this time we will ensure that the stories are all short and sweet - with a fairytale theme of fairy ditties, poems etc

Any storytellers - here is your call out to let me know if you want to take part.

Hi Peri,
I'll have a go. I think I've got time to come up with a fairy tale.

Very much hoping that me and Dave-the-mime will be coming along to Springfling this year. We'll be booking the hotel on pay day so as long as all goes well we'll see you there! :D
