Barbecue 2006

On the evening of Saturday 24th June we had our annual SAS barbecue at the Sunnyside Rural Trust building on Sunnyside Old. The event was a huge success; helped by the glorious, perfect barbecue weather (much overdue following the somewhat inclement weather of more recent years). A good number of people, (perhaps 40-50) of all ages ventured out which created an extremely
friendly atmosphere.

People sat out on the lawn ‘till late into the evening, eating food freshly cooked on the barbeque, drinking fine wines (including home made raspberry wine – thank you Michael) with great musical accompaniment from Peter Wheeler on the keyboard and vocals. A large number of children ran around all evening with extraordinary levels of energy and imagination.

The event provides a great opportunity to meet other allotment tenants and their friends and families, and its success demonstrates that there is a lot more to allotment gardening than just growing vegetables. Huge thanks go to the Sunnyside Rural Trust for their generosity in allowing us to use their facilities. Thanks also to David Lassman for his wine contributions, and to Peter for his music.
