Pop up Picnic

Social media Pop up Picnic


For 10 solid years we have held a midsummer picnic in the Jubilee Wood come rain or shine and the abiding memory is rain and not much shine.

This year, 2014 rather than a fixed calendar date for the “Summer Picnic” we take a view on the weather and when it looks settled for a few days ahead everybody twitters, texts, emails or facebooks (not sure how to pluralise facebooking) for a particular day or evening.

Yes not everybody will be able to come, but that happens anyway. All you need is a picnic hamper ready to roll.

We will still aim for June but the exact day will have to be determined by http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/sawtry-cambridgeshire#?tab=regionalForecast&fcTime=1390089600 .

Comments please.

    Flash mobbing come to Great Gidding!!

    “A flash mob (or flashmob)[1] is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression. Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.”

    Seems to fit!!!!

    Gidding flashmob,…

    We like the idea of unusual and pointless acts but afraid we can’t manage the ‘quickly disperse’ bit at the moment……but by June perhaps we will!
