A fantastic night was had by all – so a big thank you goes to Len and Heather for hosting and for providing the wonderful ‘quiet ‘fireworks and sparklers. I think we judged the food just right and we were blessed with a dry evening. Thank you to the Turnbull family for the generous donation of potatoes and to Richie for acquiring the compostable plates and cutlery
