The rain stayed off long enough for the children to take part in an Overbury tradition of dancing around the Maypole. Overbury First school students helped Grasshoppers to overcome their nerves and take part in the first dance. 

The Maypole looked beautiful in the centre of the Court.

The children were very excited and couldn't wait for the dancing to begin.


The children from the school helped our young ones to follow the music and keep in step. 

We sat and watched the older children perform some complicated dances, weaving the ribbons into beautiful patterns. 

The ribbons made some amazing patterns. 

An amazing way to be introduced to this long held tradition.
