Pirate Parade 2011
Plenty of pirates walked from the Village Hall to the pub. The younger ones collected treasure en route from the Yacht Centre and the Village Shop.

106 people danced the Reel of the 51st Division in the rain!
Unfortunately we didn't achieve the 250 people all dancing the Reel of the 51st, as required by Guinness World Records, but we had 53 couples (which stretched about 100m along the road)which was great!
