There’s a Dragon in my Cowshed 2016

As this year is our Shire’s twentieth year, two events were merged to create one long event of celebration. Our birthday, Cowshed, and our annual away event, Here Be Dragons, combined to form There is a Dragon in my Cowshed.

The weekend was filled with a variety of activities that delighted everyone.
