The Parish Picnic on the 19th of November was very successful with at least 50 attendees including children of various ages including toddlers. The weather was wonderful: a bit breezy but warm enough to wear only a cardigan. The forecast rain stayed away. Unfortunately, the fire engine did not turn up. However, there were plenty of games and all the children joined in enthusiastically irrespective of age. There was tug of war, potato and spoon race (variation of egg and spoon), and the three legged race. I think the starting whistle was popular as was the posted games time table.
Thanks to all generous donations, all the children were able to receive a prize for participation. A big thank you also to all the attendees, volunteers, and helpers in any capacity for helping to make a very successful day. Let’s aim for more fun next year!!
