Celebrating our Celebrate Smugglers

Last night BCDT hosted a very informal reward ceremony evening for the wonderful volunteers who joined us in becoming smugglers for a day.

Just a few weeks back these kids hoisted themselves back in time, through fancy dress and delivered both a thrilling and wonderful tale to a small audience. They told the story of Beith’s smuggling history, of the boats that would sneak and snake silks and teas into our waters, of the men that would then transport these wonderful treasures across the land, stopping at Beith as that was as far as a horse and carriage could go back then.

The Smugglers story telling event is just one of many fabulous event that Gill Ritchie the Arts Coordinator here at BCDTG has organised in Beith as we celebrate the 2014 Commonwealth Games and our connections with the other commonwealth nations, for more info see here.

We have to thank our wonderful volunteers as without them there would have been no play, no tale and no fun. So last night we invited them along to the Beith Juniors Hut and not only rewarded each and every one of them with a beautiful certificate but also an envelope with some of their own loot.

Sorry there no opportunity to get a shot of the food before it was gorged.

Following the awards giving we treated them all to a great feast of pizza, chips, garlic bread, giant onion rings and fizzy juice. Because although we encourage a healthy lifestyle, theres always space for a treats when you help your community like these kids have.[portfolio_slideshow id=2548]
