Boiling Wells May Day Celebrations

Well I've just got home after a lovely afternoon with the GGCC gang at Boiling Wells May Day Celebrations. I think most of us had never been to "Boiling Wells" but I think we all agreed it's quite a find, a beautiful outdoor venue, tucked away in St Werburgh's. I was certainly glad we had Cliff in the car to point us in the right direction!

We arrived to hear the end of a brilliant Samba band which was followed by a Capoeira display. The weather was good to us all, no rain and the sun even came out for a fleeting moment while we rehearsed! We had a great warm up and rehearsal at the end of the tunnel, dodging traffic and departing Samba band members.

Then we headed off to the ampitheatre to perform


Geraldine and Emma were so thrilled to be joined by well over 30 GGCC members (I know that cos I ran out of free drinks tokens and was given 30...cunning!!!)

Even though Geraldine's voice was fading fast she managed to still lead us all in songs including "Soon and very soon", "Steal Away", "Blessed be your name", "Swing Low" and "Happy Day" and Em led "We magnify" and "Nobody Knows".

All in all, a really fun afternoon, spent with lovely people in a beautiful place! It's such a joy to be able to give away something of the adventure and blessing that is GGCC. Looking forward to next Saturday when we're at Speedwell Methodist!
