We had a great time in St Helen’s Woods on July 12th. The weather was looking very threatening and we nearly cancelled, but in fact the sun came out at 3 o’clock and everything was perfect. A whole coachload of our SL friends from London & Essex came down, and everyone had a good time. Yvonne brought lovely African food to supplement the traditional BBQ fare. The youngsters enjoyed face painting, a scavenger hunt in the woods and a lucky dip. A few brave souls actually danced. We raised some £474 for the health centre – perhaps we could have raised more if the event hadn’t clashed with the St Leonards Festival.
A huge thank-you to everyone who donated raffle prizes and helped; and to Bill Orton, who generously donated the home-made sausages, to Sainsbury’s for buns and soft drinks, and to Judith Collins and the Scouts Association for the loan of two field toilets.
