East Midlands Weekend, The Lawns, 16-18th Sept 2016
27 Oct 2016 | East Midlands Group
This weekend saw the final camping trip of the year for the East Midlands group.
Despite the insistent rain on Friday, twenty of us pitched up. Saturday saw a 7-mile walk beneath the big skies of south Lincolnshire, led by Sue T. After the walk, a planning meeting was held to sort out next years events, accompanied by tea and cake.
On Saturday evening, thirty-four of us took over the barn on the campsite for a hog roast and disco, during which Fred reflected back over the last year in which the East Midlands Group has seen rather a few changes. Alan Chambers has gradually, throughout the year, passed his coordinator role across to a consortium of six members who will be joint coordinating going forward. We have continued to see a good turned out of both men and women. Also, we have kindled three new romances and a wedding this year. We send best wishes to Fred and Terry, Sam and Zoe, Helen and Debbie. And congratulations to Geoff and Allan on their recent wedding. Sunday saw a walk around the three churches of Fleet and Gedney, followed by tea and homemade cakes from the site owners, before we all went our separate ways. Helen Neal
