In fine weather, a very sociable time was had by all at a get-together, the first for a long time, suggested and organised by Bob Knox. Wives and friends attended and, after the nosebags came off, we had a gentle game of petanque, which some were trying for the first time, while others looked like they were playing for the first time ( joking ). Let’s hope it becomes an annual event. Well done, Bob. A few photos below, where some actually look like they’re enjoying themselves.

Kevin and Jim, who look like they have fallen out over something.
Linda and grandson Malachy, who know what to do when a camera is pointed at them, while Peggy, Helen and John clearly do not.
Hooray. 3 smiles from ( l to r ) Sylvia, Gayle and Peggy
Sharon, Drew and Bob, who looks relieved that things are working out all right.
( l to r ) Isla, Gerry and Gil. No ‘shades’ for Gil but, a nice shade of pullover.
Paul, clearly enjoying himself but, wondering why nobody else knew it was a ‘fancy dress’ do.
