2012 Scrapbook
Vale of Evesham Morris Weekend
  16-17 June 2012

Off to Evesham again, on a weekend when continuous rain was expected.
It hasn't stopped yet and as I write, it's the middle of July!

Sadly the promised boat trip was cancelled - the river was in flood! Nonetheless we had an enjoyable weekend.

Present were: Ali, Ann, Ann O, Colin, Chris, Chris D, Eddie, Emma, Ian, Ian O, Joe, Kelly, Liz, Lynda, Marian, MaryAnn, Mike G and Vera
