On Bank Holiday Monday over 20 of us met up for a Barbeque at the Home of some of our Church members in Swanmore. This was a time of Fundraising as well as Fellowship as the profit made from our payments towards the meal went to Prostate Cancer Research. Due to the good weather we were able to sit in the Garden, something we have not been able to do at this event for a couple of years. We enjoyed a lovely Lunch starting with Sausages, burger, chicken, Salad, Potatoes and Bread, and finishing with a choice of Blackberry and Apple Crumble, Apple Pie or Strawberries.
After our food had gone down some of us went for a Walk around the Lanes and Fields of Swanmore. We passed some Blackberry bushes in fruit which made us think that it was nearly the end of Summer. We also saw some Highland Cattle in the Nature reserve that we passed through, one of which jumped backwards when we accidently made a loud noise. It was enjoyable seeing flowers and plants and other sights of the countryside.
When we got back we realised that we had Walked about 5 miles. We were greeted on our return with very welcome Tea and Cake. Our thanks to our hosts for making this day out possible.
