Here is the FIFTH possibility (see our original article in which we asked for ideas. More please.)

OK, it’s not quite new (it will be held a second time on 20th December 2012 ) but it’s so good we just had to mention it.

A while back someone put in a Freedom of Information request to find out the total cost of policing the summer solstice but Wiltshire Police refused to say. Maybe their computer melted. There’d be no such risk in the case of the superb (and quite likely authentic) Lantern Procession along the line of the original Avenue! More details of this year’s event can be found on the Visit Amesbury Facebook page, or see the  BBC report on last year’s event.
