The signal to light wasn’t clear to those of us at the seaward end of the wall, but we took our cue from those at the other end who had seen the crown candles being lit by the Mayor and sponsors, and did our best to work quickly. It seemed not dark enough at first, but by the time we’d finished and the last of us were back on PJ for the second ferrying, we could appreciate the whole effect and our part in it……amazing, beautiful, thousands of spectators, darkening skies setting off the reflections on the water… so rewarding to be a part of creating this.
My photos are far from the best but give a flavour of the atmosphere we experienced. Time for individual reflections and memories.
Thank you to all who made the North Wall a club effort, to Joss and Chris with Keith and Rob for the ferrying, and to all our members who came along to the club for supper and drinks and bought Candle Cards. So many complimentary comments on the evening from those watching. Well done Rotary, Alan, Peter, Richard and teams, and all the other organisations for the 230 candle lighters! Sally.
The Rotary’s event photographer Rob James has a video on LoveLymeRegis, and I hear that Matt Austin also took a drone video….
