At the 2019 Abernyte Festival the visitors, young and old,  were invited to participate in the Abernyte 2019 Word Harvest.

How did it work?

They choose a ping pong ball at random on which a letter was written - no peeking!

You then added one word to a poem or short phrase, starting with that letter.

The word should have an association with those that preceded it.
