Outings Report -
Holiday travellers gathered in the Garden Room at St Pauls Church to recall the five
days in July when the group visited Hidden Northumbria. The evening sought to
remind travellers of the events of those days, using photos of locations, happenings and
people, plus videos and prompting from fellow travellers to remember what happened
there. Travellers were invited to look at each others photos, chat to fellow-
over a drink and buffet, then see the new 2013 Holiday video.
Travellers were presented with an excellent buffet, with a wide selection to suit
all tastes. Vol au vents, Quiche Bites, Canapes, Blinis and oriental dips. Pizza
squares, Sausage rolls, Dips plus a splendid Variety of English cheeses, Sandwiches
Overall, a splendid layout -
The buffet was complemented by Shiraz and Chardonnay and soft drinks, which helped regenerate the holiday recollections and created animated conversations.
After the buffet, the group moved into the church for the Mike Reed video diary of
the Northumbrian Holiday – this being the tenth such Holiday video (wow!)-
After the filmshow, guests wandered back into the Garden Room and restarted their animated conversations, and continued, and continued. After the call of ‘Time, Gentlemen Please’, there was general agreement that the soiree is the most informal, friendly and enjoyable event in the social calendar.
But the Soiree and filmshow would not have been possible without Peter Whattam who organises our use of this location. We can’t really thank Peter enough for his help. The location is ideal and admirably meets our needs.
