At the recent Church Away Day it was suggested that occasional social events would help members and friends to get to know each other and enjoy fellowship generally.

Our thanks go to Alan and Margaret Dymond for organising a Saturday afternoon competition, playing Boules in the church hall. Alan designed and made the playing area, utilising sand discovered in the basement after a recent plumbing leak.

An enjoyable afternoon followed and a number of participants revealed a very competitive streak. The winner of the knock-out competition was Gwyneth Owen! No comment is made re linking the two previous sentences!!

To maintain the interest of those waiting to play several quizzes were available — all based on French themes. Gwyneth led us, through projected material, in singing several old favourites, Frere Jacques, Alouette etc., in French.

Thanks also go to those who helped Margaret in the kitchen to provide a buffet meal and to those who both set up and cleared the "pitch". Sand does have a habit of going in all directions when a Boules "projectile" lands in it. The church hall required a number of sweepings before it was clear of sand.
