After all those lovely summer evenings in June and July the night of the Capel Ladies Barbecue turned out to be unsettled, cool and very blustery! However, we were safely tucked away inside a marquee, courtesy of Liz and Tony Gulliver, our hosts, enjoying a delicious spread of barbecued meats and salads, followed by a selection of creamy gateaux, so the weather didn’t affect us in the slightest. We had a tricky quiz from Pat Bradford where we had to match the correct event to the year it happened, and a Lucky Raffle Prize Draw. At the end of the evening Di Barker thanked our hosts and presented them with wine and flowers. The end of another Barbecue, but let’s hope it’s not the end of another summer!
Coming up we have a touch of Turkish sunshine from our September speaker Jenny Gibbs, a trip to the Munnings Museum with afternoon tea, and a craft evening.
