Counted in Bard of Hawkwood on Monday 04 May, My soap box mound. my spring: the lower lawn of Hawkwood College, in Stroud's Five Valleys, which I don't think include the Slad Valley and Laurie Lee's pub, the Woolpack. I will have to check up on it. Quite a lot of checking up to do anyway on my Bardic status, for the next year and a day. Tee shirts available soon, first official bardic engagement at the Seed Festival on Saturday, 18 July. Meanwhile, pictures from the day here include a cape borrowed from Kevan Manwaring.
