This photo taken by Shona last year amused her and she recently sent it in telling us:.

At Badbury Rings on 06/05/2020 the Dingy Skippers seemed to be playing a game of let’s-hang-upside-down-on the-Speedwell! They didn’t stay there for long, but I did manage to grab a few shots, including this one. 

I’m just hoping that the “Dingies” have survived the razing to the ground of the inner Rings at Badbury last Autumn.
