That's it then. Not another this millenium. And lots of you missed it. No more. Done and dusted. History. We'll all have to wait until August 2000 for the next Pilgrims Rally. Those of you that managed to get there will know that it was as good as ever-just quieter. Where was everyone? What did we say? Do wrong?
Next year will be different. The beer tent will be twice as large so as to accommodate the much increased range of ales. And there shall be entertainment. We have arranged for a third marquee very large for the Saturday evening concert. At present, only Madonna and Elton John are booked, but others are yet to confirm. And it's all free. I lie. The Saturday morning ritual was not without incident this year. For those of you that have an afternoon/early evening ritual, Friday would certainly have been trying. No loos until early evening. But, I'm not talking about that kind of ritual. It's the go out and fetch the paper ritual to which I refer.
The route through the woods to the 'Triangle' shops is a most pleasant walk. Do it every year. Love it. Why did I end up back on Lea Chapel Lane? I didn't even recognize it at first, came in from an odd angle you understand. Never mind, there was always the walk back. I'll get it right then. And so, the 'Triangle' shops. What's this? Closed? No, no. Can't be ? They can't do that
