Summer Barbecue

Monday night was all about fun, food and fire safety!

We celebrated summer with our annual barbecue, and what a wonderful celebration it was.

Jane and Di manned the barbecue with great skill.

Before settling in to our lovely meal, we were given a brief talk about barbecue safety from Jordan Snook of Tolvaddon Community Fire Station. Jordan gave us pointers about both gas and charcoal barbecues, as well as on the use of disposable ones on the beach. We then also heard about general fire safety in the home and discovered that our local community fire stations offer free home fire safety checks! If you’re interested in arranging for some strapping firemen to come and make sure you’re safe, click here.

It was then barbecue time!

The Committee prepared a gorgeous spread of burgers, sausages and veggie kebabs, along with all sorts of delicious salads as accompaniments. Afterwards, we were served strawberries, cream and Jane’s marvellous meringues.

Sue can't get enough of those meringues!

We were so lucky that it was a beautiful warm evening. It was perfect barbecue weather!

On top of all that, we were visited by old friend Maureen Fordham who was holidaying in Corwall, and we also welcomed our newest member, Elaine Hughes!

A fabulous barbecue!

Last night was our first ever Crowlas & Ludgvan summer barbecue, and what a lovely event it was!




Thank you so much to all who came and made it such a jolly evening. And also thank you to the members of the committee who worked so hard to make it a success – particularly to Gail Allen who manned the barbecue like a pro!
