We had a remarkably good turnout in spite of a gloomy, overcast day. The weather remained dry and relatively warm in the evening so for once no need to shelter under the gazebo.
Phil was in charge of cooking the sausages and Kay sorted out all the extras from cooked onions to tomato ketchup. Debbie organised the desserts of Tiramisu, Plum Tart and Apple Flan accessorised with a huge jug of whipped cream. All very delicious.
Music was provided by David with his “Street Organ”. Although still in an unfinished state the organ played cheery tunes to give an entertaining fairground-style background to our chat. Wearing his Past Commodore hat David also presented the Newton family with their trophy for second prize in the Concours d’Elegance 2010.
Kay organised a raffle with so many prizes that almost every couple won something – and some more than one prize. The raffle raised £72 which will go to the Commodore’s chosen charity, the Thames Path National Trail fund with which Julia and Jim help on a regular basis.
