It was a fine morning with the usual suspects present and the normal tasks under way. Dave T, Mary, Bob & Ros, Maurice, Mike and Steve all gainfully employed and a car park full of cars and coaches to match.

As a bonus for working hard I got a free lettuce from the allotment area (thanks John) and then picked a crop of nearly ripe plums from the P1 embankment. Very tasty they both were or will be.
Regards to all,
