Events Diary: August BBQs

During August we had five Saturday BBQs which were well attended. We also had one brunch on the August Bank Holiday Monday. We had a range of meat, vegetarian and vegan options. We also served onions, cheese, etc as well as a full range of condiments.

There are some notable volunteers who made this happen:

  • Chefs: Ian Birch and Tony Cross
  • Food organisers: Rachel Cross and Louise Birch
  • Merchandise table: Anne Tebbatt and Peter Clifford

We also had some music from The Soul Works Duo and some impromptu guitar and bassoon sessions.

We were very lucky with the weather - blue skies each time.
