GamBLE is a charity based in Yalding that aims to improve the quality of the education of children in Gambia. The name is a contraction of their purpose: "Gambia - Building Links in Education".
The charity organised a "Cultural Safari" which showcased a number of traditional arts, crafts and music. The activities were based in the village of Yalding and they invited Kettle Bridge to give a demonstration and hold a workshop of morris dancing. We of course were delighted to help with such a worthy cause.
There had been plenty of rain in the lead up to the event so our dancing location was switched from its original puddle-strewn site to the area outside the Forge. Having said that, the weather on the day itself was very pleasant, with warm sunshine beating down, most unseasonal for October!
A small but appreciative crowd gathered to watch our performance which featured:
This brought an end to our contribution to the event and the organisers very kindly provided free tea, coffee and cakes as a "thank you". There was then just time for us to wander round the other parts of the Cultural Safari before it was time to leave.
