Funky Club

These are some photographs of Funky Club which happens every Friday evening at the social room in Camphill Milton Keynes.

A club is an association of people united by a common interest or goal. A service club, for example, exists for voluntary or charitable activities. There are clubs devoted to hobbies, and sports, social activities, political and religious clubs, and so forth.

Maypole Dancing

Maypole dancing is a tradition on May Day. It is believed to have started in Roman Britain around 2,000 years ago, when soldiers celebrated the arrival of spring by dancing around decorated trees thanking their goddess Flora. These days dancers weave ribbons around a pole rather than a tree... The British May Day tradition of dancing around a maypole is around 600 years old and the activity often brings communities together.

Lunch at Willen Lake

Lunch is a meal eaten around the middle of the day. It is commonly the second meal of the day, after breakfast, and varies in size by culture and region.

Tastes in food, menu items, and meal periods have changed dramatically over time. During the Middle Ages, the main meal of the day, then called dinner, for almost everyone, took place late in the morning after several hours of work, when there was no need for artificial lighting. In the early to mid-17th century, the meal could be any time between late morning and mid-afternoon.

Litter Picking

These are photographs of residents of Camphill Milton Keynes doing litter picking.

Litter picking is the activity of going around a public place picking up litter (- small pieces of rubbish lying on the ground).

Any litter removed from a natural ecosystem helps wildlife and creates a better space for humans too! Counteract litterbugs by being a litter picker. You don't have to be on an organised litter pick to help, just pick up any rogue litter when you see it and pop it in the bin!
