101 Uses for a 12th Century building.

No. 1: Teddy Bear Bungee-jumping.



This is a traditional part of SMR's Summer Fete, and if nothing else will convince you that ancient buildings are worth keepping, this should. Teddy is attached to the bungee. Then he is hoisted to the top of the building and released. Enormous fun follows, and waiting for him at the bottom is a certificate to say that he did it! 25p well spent, I say. First to try it at the Summer Fete this year were Scooby Doo and Shaggy, so it has celebrity endorsement as well. The teddy bear in the picture was a bit of a show-off and did it on horse back.

Fantastic!

I do not have words to express my envy and admiration...

Don't forget there's a river underneath, and teddies can't swim.

That's one brave bear you have.

Now you can call me cynical if you want, but I am beginning to develop some suspicions about all these SMR traditions...

Are people sniggering behind your back...?
