With a threat of showers, 80 Rotarians, Inner Wheel members and friends were pleased that the weather stayed fine for the Barbecue and Strawberry Tea on 12th August. As usual, the event was held at the lovely garden of Rtn. Ken and Peggy Beresford.

After trying their hand in the boules competition, organised as usual by Rtn. Bill Whittaker, guests tucked into a tasty meal with Rtn. Tim Bramwell, Nigel Crane and Margaret Blackwell doing the hot stuff and Jan Ludlam, Judi Baxter and Maureen Williams and other Inner Wheel members serving up the salad and sweets.

The winner of the boules competition was Keith Newton. Gifts were presented by Rotary Club President Andy Wilkie to Jan, Judi, Nigel and Margaret and to Ken and Peggy for the use of their garden.

Judi and Jan were shocked and then thrilled to be presented by President Andy with Paul Harris Fellowships for their work for the Rotary club over many years.

We have made a small profit from the barbecue and raffles which will be spend on worthwhile projects.
