The recent BBQ was a great success and hugely enjoyed by all who came along (we didn't let a spot or two of rain put us off!). A fantastic effort from all concerned, particularly Shirley and Rene. Rene was clearly very much at home doing the cooking and his home-made burgers were just delicious. There was a marvellous selection of salads and Shirley’s fruit punch was an excellent way to wash it all down. Anyone who took home leftovers was delighted.
Below is a message from Shirley and Rene........
Thank you very much for your compliments with regard to the barbeque. We are glad it went well, everyone had a good time, and you are all pleased with the outcome.
Hopefully it will stimulate more interest in future social occasions, which we are well placed to support in any way we can.
Thanks to Moira and Jan (salads, cheese board and 'doggy-boxes'great forward planning!!), Jean R (thanks, we will definitely plan to use the 'toys' / activities at a future event), and all the 'washer-uppers' who took on the clearing away with a vengeance; not to mention those who cleared away the tables and chairs and Johnson's skill with the wide broom!
Special note of mention to Valéry who offered her help instantly from the start, arrived bright and early and whose skill shone through as she set out tables, dished up the salads and basically took over, allowing me to go and buy some shelter for Rene, as it became obvious that both he and the barbecue required shelter urgently!
Shirley and Rene.
