The Society Summer Lunch July 27th 2013

Reporter: Anne Grimshaw

 

Despite a somewhat unpromising weather forecast, Saturday 27 July, proved to be a perfect summer day for the Sudbury Society’s Summer Lunch held in Tony and Lesley Platt’s garden in Great Cornard. It was sunny with a light breeze now and then, warm – hot even, but sitting in the shade of leafy cherry trees it was just right.

 

 

There was food and drink aplenty – all contributed by members and such variety and so colourful. Thanks go to Diana Clifford and Maria Mills for their catering and organisational skills. But, of course, what really ‘makes’ events such a these is the company. There isn’t much ‘chatting time’ at regular meetings so today’s lunch was a time to relax and catch up at length. It was good to see and talk to some newer members of the Society.

We were even treated to unofficial (at least I assumed no one had arranged it) low flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s World War II Dakota aircraft!

Tony and Lesley Platt were given tokens of appreciation for their hospitality with the offer of their garden in future. The offer was gratefully accepted – let’s hope they can organise the weather again!

We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and will continue to attend Society events.
