Centenary Church Picnic – Saturday 22nd June 2013
DIDN’T WE HAVE A LOVELY TIME THE DAY WE WENT TO… NETHERURD
What a splendid venue for our Centenary Church Picnic.
A beautiful and safe environment where the children were free to run and try the various activities laid on.
Some older folk had a go at skipping, but the ladies cawing the rope had it purloined as a new game was devised – “Getting the Wellie down from a Roof”!
Lunch was provided and indoor picnic groups enjoyed the food laid on.
Alas, rain drove us indoors where in a huge tented barn we could all congregate and where some of the races were run and the great tug-of-war took place.
A visit to Netherurd House had been arranged and many of the adults enjoyed a tour of this lovely building – how lucky are those who come to use its facilities.
Jamie remarked on how good it was to see people of all ages coming together and having a great time. He then presented medals to the race winners, and also to the families who had come the furthest – all the way from Aberdeen and Benderloch.
All too soon it was time to return to Corstorphine. It is to be hoped the younger ones enjoyed some singing in the be-streamered double-decker bus.The older folk in the coach certainly did.
This picnic didn’t happen without a great deal of planning and preparation and most grateful thanks go to Mary Patterson, Laureen Lyall and Kath Palmer for organising the event – with thanks also to those who helped on the day.
