Image of the Mayday Maypole Dance taken in the small village of Sturminster Marshall, in east Dorset in the UK. The day was for young school children to show their skills in performing the delicate moves with the ribbons on the Maypole, it was a fantastic day, the weather held, all had fun and the children did superbly. A large crown of village locals oversaw the festivities.
I considered myself very fortunate to be present at this great event as it is the first one I have actually observed first hand apart from those seen on T.V.
