Thank you so so much...
We’re pretty overwhelmed by the amount of enquiries asking whether we’re having another vintage event this summer!
.
A short answer would have to be “very unlikely” for now, however lets see how things go!
.
The main reason is not the pandemic of the corona virus.
It’s more to do with a sense of loss of the Yarmouth School, we have to admit...
.
As you may know, we never wanted this event to be just a place for selling and buying old stuff.
.
We always wanted it to be about the inspiration, the creativity, and the community of the island, particularly the future of Yarmouth, as well as the West Wight.
.
We had over 6000 visitors, in total, and raised almost £3000 for the school over the past few years, and the school agreed to use the money for creative activities such as sewing, drawing, music, and nature play in the woods.
.
It’s unique, and we felt so good to work that way...but our little school is not going to be there in Yarmouth any moreπŸ˜”
.
The decision has been made against 99.9% of the will of the town, the residents, the parents and the pupils the most importantly.
.
We already started seeing some closures of local vibrant businesses, and young family setting to move out...what next.
.
This is another victory for the normality, and another loss of uniqueness.
.
Our biggest fear is the pandemic of normality, where creative people get killed by boringness!
.
We really should be proud of our “island mentality”, and there wouldn’t be any better use of it other than this...of resisting against the normality brought in by central government or a few useless councillors/local governors😭
.
Sorry...went a bit too far, but it’s good being honest about your feelings sometimes😊
.
There will be a stage in your life that you may keep winning, or the other way around, and you can’t stop it just like you can’t do anything to a flow of the tide.
We are indeed learning it from this...oh well!
.
Stay safe, but NEVER stay normal.
.
Don’t listen to boring people.
Always listen to inner yourself...
.
Stay on your own island, and never be afraid of being alone...because you will never be alone that way.
.
That’s our message to our childrenπŸ₯°
