The combination of working meet, bonfire and a birthday generated a great attendance for this meet.  Sadly a lot has happened in my head since the meet (including a bout of covid), so I'm struggling to remember who was present and who did what.  The above list of attendees is broadly accurate, although there were a few members whose names I sadly didn't catch, and I may have added a couple of people who weren't actually there!


I further excelled as 'joint meet leader' by accidentally giving Steve L a dairy intolerance as a result of a whatsapp mix up.


Lots of jobs were completed on Saturday including:

Porch window replacement - Steve L (with verbal assistance and advice from most passers-by)

Kitchen cleaning and food prep - Jo and Izy

Gutter cleaning - Greg and (a very wet and dirty) Ian

Mowing - Stuart

Strimming - John, Jared, Rory

An amazing start to the steps up to the knoll - Mich, Lewis and others

Door painting - Emily

Roof tile replacement - Ian and Greg (looking very nervous stood below)

Clearing and bulb planting - Jess

Power washing - Leah


In the afternoon Jared snuck off for a climb whilst others built the bonfire for the evening's entertainment.


Luckily my memory is bad, so I can't name and shame the people who were VERY DRUNK, but I'm certain there was some drinking involved!


Apologies to anyone I've branded 'dairy intolerant', miss-named, erroneously added or straight up forgotten!
