From me and my team it has been a Dream.
This years Fairy days have been so filled with smiles and positive feedback that it makes all the time and effort worthwhile.I have so many people to Thank who continue to support me and reassure me when skies are grey and they are right because everything is always great on the day.You the public make that happen by attending and supporting local traders and bringing along your own imagination.
It does however lead me to Thank Bernadette and Johnathon from Highhead for allowing us to return year after year flying around their valley where it all began.Unfortunately we will no longer be flying around the Valley sprinkling sparkles everywhere however our main Cumbrian Fairy Day will continue and info will be made available soon for you all.
So we started in May with our Super Sunny day in the stunning location of Kirklinton Hall and Gardens .Here the children got to make flower crown ,decorate unicorns and dragons along with dragon adoption.Pixie creations brought along their maypole and music makers ran some amazing workshops.Dancing on the lawn with Maddison entertainment was joined by Jason the Juggling jester.Many took time out to wander through the glen in search of the resident fairies and fairy shopping was enjoyed by all.
Our Main Cumbrian Fairy Day was bursting with Magic and an array of activities to take part in for free lets make next years just as Sparkly.From squirting paint to banging on drums boys and girls were glowing with smiles,their minds full of imagination as they joined the fairies to decorate toadstolls and visted the Gnome Zone to meet our chief elf.The day was finished with a super parade of colour,music and fairy dust.
Then by request of Morton Manor along with friends of Chances park the gardens we filled with fun and activities for all ages and it was a joy to see so many having pixie picnics on the lawn enjoying the beautiful outside space that is on offer.
Yesterday we had a return flight to Silloth where the Silloth Green team had invited us back to dance,sing and create on their green.Mandi Leonard brought along a group of talented pupils who sang their hearts out through the wind.A Fairy trail was organised by Nicola from Fairysawdust along with Vicky hope from the fairy dust emporium .Trails were handed out by Chris White the pirate being carried by a Gnome who has now travelled home.The day also included fairies from afar Freyja Faery who ran our first ever fairy dog show,then finished the day with some pirate fairy fire dancing.Huge thanks for making this day possible go to Owen Martin without his encouragement I am not sure my wings could of taken flight but wow what a delight.I ask that you store those memories in your hearts and keep believing in fairies because they believe in you...
