Neantóga (Eco-Tribes) Garden, 2017 – Photos
















The recent Bealtaine (May) festival in the community garden that the students of Aston Village built was wonderfully successful. In golden sunshine, the boys, girls, men and woman of the Aston Village community discovered their Celtic heritage, took part in ancient traditions, made wishes and had fun – lots of fun!

Click on the image (or HERE) to view the folder of photos, which were professionally taken and kindly shared by Alasdair McAllister. You can download and / or print the photos at your leisure. They are beautiful pictures that capture the spirit of a special day.

Thank you, members of the Aston Village Community, for sharing the day with us and making it a success. Thanks also to the Neantóg Clann for planning, building, and organising.

Kind regards, Mark and the Neantóga

Cycle to School Day an Amazing Success!

Last week’s ‘Cycle your bike to school Day’ proved an undoubted success as you can see from the pictures! Children brought their bicycles, scooters, skateboards and very important helmets with them and proudly took part in our cycle course in front of the school. As part of the week-long ‘Active Schools’ campaign, the children were very keen to show off their street smart cycling skills and pass on the messages to adults that cycling is good for you and that they too use the roads and to be considerate of them cycling in residential areas. Well done all!
