Picnic in the orchard: Nice scones, shame about the weather

Postby MarkEvens » Wed Jun 15, 2011 11:40 am

About 25 NCOG members visited Alan and Glenda Bowman's beautiful grounds at Watemillock on June 12th 2011. Although the fine day turned slowly into a steady drizzle, the event was very enjoyable. It was an opportunity to socialise and discuss various orchard and non-orchard matters, particularly the very fine wild flower meadow adjacent to the orchard (see picture below). The views over Ullswater were stunning, as were Glenda's home-baked scones. In addition, the raffle raised about £30 for group funds.
Many thanks are due to Alan and Glenda for their hospitality and to all those who donated raffle prizes.
