Lovely to see so many people willing to come out on an overcast and chilly day to help us celebrate the Lohri Festival and Wassail our fruit trees! Thanks as always to the wonderful Prakash for providing the gorgeous food, and to Mark for bringing his drums to provide the heartbeat.
It was a good day for learning too. Tracey began the day being interviewed about what we were planning on Radio Nottingham, so at least 1 listener learned about the session and came to see what we were doing. And Tracey learned she's been saying "Lohri" wrong for quite a while - apparently it should be pronounced "Loiyi" - so hopefully she'll get it right next year!
