Fun and Games at the Phoenix Picnic

Monday 26th July 2010

The Phoenix picnic on Sunday afternoon saw a revival of the mighty 'Tug of war.'. The magnificent girls' team beat the boys' team 2-1 and lost only narrowly to a fiercely competitive 'ladies' team. (For some reason the gentlemen were left in peace dozing in the sunshine.) Rounders was played, footballs were kicked and the cricket stumps came out. Meanwhile delicious cakes and sweets were being passed round while the weather smiled on us. All in all a lovely summer afternoon and one that hopefully will become an annual fixture. Thanks to Andy Bone and John Marinko for organising it and to Tom Farsides for the best chocolate Brownies I've ever eaten! AH
