Marching off Vinegar Hill on New Years Eve night.

This was an event organized by the the local Pikegroup. The groups assembled in Bellfield as they had done on the 21st of June, except that this time (at least for the most part) the groups lined up without banners and marched in undefined groups. The night was very dark and a little drizzle fell at times. It amazed me that no one was injured in some of the very large potholes that were traversed along the route.

There was a good turnout of Pikepeople but the onlookers were understandably scarce, mainly due to the early start. Anyone who wished to be there would have had to make arrangements to leave work early. It was however an appropriate way to end the unforgettable year that was 1998.
