Summer Solstice 2020



Barbara writes,
"Next weekend is the Summer Solstice. 


It’s always been a very important day for me,
so, once again, although in a new format,
we will have a Labyrinth on my beach
at 30 Warren Avenue, Plymouth


We will not have our circle and
we will limit the labyrinth to four people
at a time....  


All weather permitting. 


So, come with a friend or three and stay
in your car until the people ahead of
you come up."
