Circular Spirit Camp

August Bank Holiday Weekend

Every year the people that make up the heart and spirit of Avebury all get together to celebrate everything. Each year we try new things and set about to have a fun and relaxing time in the sun... it's always sunny at the Spirit Camp... guaranteed!

This year's Spirit Camp adopts the much preferred atmosphere and entertainment of the the first year's Spirit Camp by bringing back the warmth of a family event centred around sharing of old knowledge, crafts and skills. So bring your music, your art, your interests and your hearts, and come and share in what will be the delight of another long weekend fun and frivolity.

The location for this wonderful event will be close Avebury - only a few miles away from Devizes in fact.

This time round we have some added luxuries:
Paddling Pool
Free outdoor swimming pool (subject to weather etc)
Children's play area
BBQ area
Toilet Block
...and the real clincher, Showers!

The whole weekend costs a mere £20 with under 16's free as long as they're with a paying adult.
Car Parking is a £1 a day

To get your tickets (and quick, because they'll go very quickly indeed) simply send in your cheques, written out to the Avebury Circular, to
The Avebury Circular
PO BOX 3360
SN10 9BA
Remember to include a note with your names. addresses and telephone numbers.

Finally, poor ol' Rover's got to stay at home for this one... no dogs allowed.

Lama Khemsar Rinpoche visits Avebury.

Greetings all. I hoope you all enjoyed the last Moot. The original speaker dropped out at the last minute and then I got myself a wee bit stuck and couldn't make it. Luckily John picked up my reins for me and Chuck, the Bard of Avebury did his stuff with music, tales and myth. Thank you John and Chuck.

Prior to the next Moot you may all be interested in a visit we're having from Lama Khemsar Rinpoche who will be delivering talks and the like in the local area. Also, next Tuesday he will be giving a free talk from the Social Centre. I've embedded the flyer into this posting - if you click on the top right corner of the flyer or the bottom left, then you'll see the full flyer.

Greetings Mooties! Last month we were lucky enough to have a very lively bodhran workshop and drumming circle. The lovely people from the Avebury Open Mic worked with us to give us a unique setting in the sun and a jolly good time was had by all.

This month there will be one or two guest speakers and neither of them have revealed the subjects they're going to talk about. Mystery! Intrigue! We're also going to get a special visit from the Bard of Avebury who will be unravelling some of the mysteries, myths and legends of Avebury and the surrounds. Usual time - 2.45 for a 3.00 start :)

Last month I was also lucky to attend the Calne/Chippingham moot that was delivered my the lovely Carlie. She shared some of her knowledge of plant medicines and food - she even brought in over 20 edible plants she found whilst wondering up to tgive the talk! So if you fancy another fascinating diversion then get yourselves over to the Wheatsheaf this coming Thursday for before 8pm.
