This is one of the best charity meeting of the year. As usual we meet at Halfords car park in Hemel Hempstead because the weather forecast was not so good only Steve was waiting for us.
Lucky for us just before 10:30 Frank arrived in his car as we were not quite sure how to get there.
The event takes place in the yard of Reg Jellis in Cheddington which is out in the countryside down lots of twisty little roads.
On arrival Peter Mayne, Karen & Steve and few others were already there and the barbecue was up and running. The weather was very dull with a little drizzle but not too cold and there were plenty of places to sit including a marquee to shelter from the rain. Lucky it didn’t rain for long and it turned out not to be a bad day at all.
Teas, coffee and biscuits were very welcoming on arrival and any donations went into the box for the charity. Also the barbecue was free providing you donate or buy raffle tickets. As the burgers and sausages are superb and especially made for the barbecue Brian brought a dozen of sausages and half dozen burgers to take home. Raffle prizes are donated from most of us that attended and there was so many prizes to win on the day.
Not long after we arrived Bob Norman turned up followed by Steve and Keith. Unfortunately not so many turned up this year because of the weather forecast and it turned out to be not a bad day after all.
Also every one enjoyed the day and they were all very generous with their donations so hopefully they raised a good amount of profit for this very special charity for the blind.
Brian and I are looking forward to coming back next year. Brilliant day out as we are always made so welcome. please try to make it next year rain or shine you won’t be disappointed.
