Camphill Sports Day

Sports days (British English) or field days (American English) are events staged by many institutions in which people participate in competitive sporting activities, often with the aim of winning trophies or prizes. Though they are often held at the beginning of summer, they are also staged in the autumn or spring seasons, especially in countries where the summer is very harsh.

Willen Dragon Boat Races

Dragon boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today - as well as being extremely fun.

Teams took to the waters of Willen Lake, racing in brightly-coloured 30-foot dragon boats, each with a majestic dragon's head at the bow and a traditional drum to keep the beat with the rowers' strokes, while the first set started at 10am.

Up to 48 teams can compete over the 200m race course, watched by several thousand spectators.

43rd Anniversary of the Milton Keynes Peace Pagoda


I feel this Temple is like a jewel palace because in the ten directions there are the three jewels who reside in the ultimate reality. I bow my body to the true Buddha, Dharma and Sangha present here, touching their feet with my forehead.

Veneration to the Triple Gem

We revere and worship with one mind the imperishable and eternal Buddha, Dharma (Law/Truth) and Sangha (Community) that reside within the ten directions of the Universe.
