Our usual British Summer weather meant that this event intended to be held in the Church Grounds was transferred to the Church Hall. Instead of beef burgers and sausages cooked over a charcoal barbecue, they were cooked in kitchen. The various sports planned went ahead, despite the weather, and included a three legged race, an egg and spoon race, musical chairs. a caterpillar race,throwing the sponge ball, a sack race and a how many children does it take to tug the vicar in a chair.
Pictured above – it was only when two of the men present decided to join in that we finally were able to move Father Martin in the chair. Winners of events were presented with sashes and at the end of the Games Father Martin presented Gold Medals. Father Mervyn presented Father Martin with a gold medal to thank him for all the planning, and hard work in organising this most enjoyable social event.
