The Friends of Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill offer a number of activities throughout the year to help them satisfy their constitutional objective:
Blackford Hill Festival Review
Wow! What a successful 1st Festival!
Thanks to Countryside Ranger, Jessica Morgado, ably assisted by Ranger Susan Dickson, everyone seemed to have a wonderful time in the perfect weather. Can the weather ever be that good again?
All the stall holders were kept busy with enquiries and many of the 200-plus(?) visitors said to our Committee members that they had found the displays very interesting. Lots of faces were painted, kites were built, our captured moths were closely examined and our teas, coffees and juice seemed much appreciated.
Spectators sat around the Superdog course in the warm sunshine to be entertained by an extraordinary range of sizes and ages of dogs. There were a lot of quick-thinking dogs around who realised that it was a lot easier to go round the obstacles than over them as the silly humans wanted them to do!
We are already being asked if there is going to be another one next year!
