Despite it being not the warmest and driest of evenings, a great crowd from the two villages made the climb up Cnoc na h-Oifis, to enjoy the bonfire, fireworks, sparklers and finger lights.
For the second year running, the wind kept people guessing, and on their toes, but once the bonfire was lit, the committee was vigilant, people kept a safe distance, and everything passed without incident.
Despite the conditions, all present managed to not let the conditions dampen their enjoyment, and they were treated to a great firework display, with Angus, Calum Dan and Finlay ensuring that there was a constant stream of bangs and flashes and sparkles.
The fireworks, again supplied by Maybury Gardens, were quite spectacular, and we have had great feedback from people in the villages south of Loch Erisort who had seen and appreciated the show too.
The Estate Office was ideal as a shelter for the odd moments the rain decided to intervene, and managed by Cathy Morrison and a team of willing volunteers—the place for hot soup and beverages, tables full of the most delicious baking and edibles, seating as the night wore on, and for a good ceilidh and natter.
The combined efforts of the Keose Glebe Steering Group and the Keose and Glebe Community Association had put in a power of work to make it all happen, and it was great to meet and catch up with everyone, and especially lovely to see so many local children out having fun and a great time.
A big thank you to all who baked, helped, donated, set up, tidied and just turned out— we are a great wee community!
