What a triumph! It is still in full flow and perhaps we could ask for a report afterwards? Events to date have been heavily subscribed, comments and feedback are wonderful.  Casual observation saw a queue of cars from Kiloran farmhouse to the Old Hall, suggesting that William Joll had a good turnout for bread-making;  on the night of May 4th, so many people turned up for the talk by Tannis on McNeill history that the room was completely filled and some of us will await a future presentation; David had an enthusiastic turnout for his farmwalk in challenging conditions,  as did David Jardine for his Oransay walk.  Eight people came to look at the archaeology of Garvard, there were two enthusiastic bands of people on the drystane dyking practical course, and a full house for the lecture.  Enough burbling – go to http://www.colonsayevents.co.uk/ and you can download details for each of the three weeks involved.
