Our first outdoor event of the year was blessed with good weather, and a fantastic turnout of sixteen club members ready to solve our clues and find their way to the Mystery Lunch venue.

Our route took them into Hampshire via several Army locations, then across country towards Fleet, Hartley Wintney, Eversley, Yateley and back onto the A30 at Blackwater, where everyone arrived safely for lunch at The Ely pub. Roger and Denise won
the prize for most clues solved.

The halfway stop had been located at the rather nice Redfields Garden Centre near Fleet, and this seemed to have caused some expense and vows of return visits to be made another day!

After lunch we were invited by Debbie and Detleff to visit their home in Frimley for “a cup of tea”. Despite having had a more than adequate lunch, twelve of us had no problem tucking into some lovely scones with jam and cream and fabulous homemade cakes to accompany our cups of tea and coffee. Thank you both for being such welcoming hosts of this unexpected treat.
