Wind, Water and Wine
As spring approaches in our valley, so does the tempo of life, and the South Easter is the harbinger of summer. In our last newsletter we listed a myriad of things that would be happening in and around the village until early September. The Poetry Festival is upon us in just over a week, and then the village is flooded with running and cycling enthusiasts.

Festivals, slow, of poets and cycles
Winter is a time of extremes in McGregor, and I don't just mean of the weather. It's a time of year when things are either really quiet or the village is chockablock full of people having fun. We are heading into a time like this, from the beginning of August and to September.

Country arts festival and free food - all in Magic McGregor
It's not good to start with an apology, they say, but I am. It's the second month that you are receiving an extra newsletter. I think, though, it's in a good cause. In the newsletter you received a few days ago, I told you about the McGregor Arts Festival - with very little detail. Now we know a little more, and want to share it with you.
Frolicking into March Madness
After the January lull with everyone returning to work and school, McGregor girds its loins for the harvest which, notwithstanding the drought, is in full swing. It’s celebrated by an annual festival which culminates this weekend.

Dashing towards December
The season in McGregor is a really festive one with friends and family visiting loved-ones, swallows from abroad in their summer nests, and the now traditional village festivities.
It also has more about the McGregor Wines Race2Nowhere - 1-day MTB race and provides the dates for the 2018 Hands-on Harvest
I clearly got it wrong when I said the weather in McGregor would be perfect. That didn't spoil things, though. Read more in our newsletter which also gives details of pottery workshops at the end of November, and into December 2017.
October in and around McGregor
October is the month during which McGregor revels in the beauty of spring. Although the weather can be changeable, it’s never freezing (although we’ve been known to cosy up to a nice log fire – just because we can). Nor does it scorch the trees. Just perfect.
