Our children celebrated Whitsun at home this year. For us, this is a festival of peace and unity, global community and understanding. It is perhaps a more reflective version of the May Day celebrations, in which we recognise that we are part of the human community in our spirit as well as our deeds.

Families were encouraged to join us in different activities such as making bread or paper doves, collecting white flowers and making elderflower cordial. Some of their celebrations are pictured here.
