On August 17 our group meeting was held on Susie’s and Mike’s allotment and started with a short “tour” of the allotment where they grow a good proportion of the vegetables they need. We were blessed with a perfect evening for an alfresco meeting that was convened in the allotments’ ‘communal seating area’. Members of the group thanked Susie & Mike for hosting the event and treating us to some wonderful food including freshly home baked focaccia bread.
The meeting was a truly atmospheric event as the sun gradually went down and we ended up in darkness save for the odd wind-up lantern! It felt good to be in contact with a kind of nature, even though in actual fact cultivated. It leads to the thought that we might have other group meetings in venues other than the usual pub. Something for discussion next time. . . TGB
