Wreckers Birthday Bash in Cornwall
15th-16th August 2015
Wreckers Morris invited us to their 15th Birthday Bash, and as we'd
been to their 5th and 10th birthdays we went along and had a great
OBJ comprised: Alison, Ann, Chris, Clare, Claudia, Colin, Jason, Joe, Karen, Mark, MaryAnn, Nikki, Pegeen, Philip, Sarah and Tony, with some help from Jess and Sharon.
Saturday was spent on a coach trip to some nice spots.
The first was Restormel Castle, near Lothwithiel
Here is Ann doing a bit of posing

Clare, Mark, Jason, Colin and Tony with two of Wreckers' finest

The band get ready, assisted by Sharon
Clare, Sarah and Karen on the outside, with Claudia, Tony and Philip in the middle
are now in and vice versa, and Ann has tagged Claudia
Mark enjoy the view
on the bus, and we turn up in Fowey
This is Dilwyn, danced by the harbour
Jess is helping out
|A bit of fancy footwork
We were helped out by some of our "tribute band" - Devon Borderline

Claudia, Ann, MaryAnn and Clare on the left - Tony and Karen visible on the right
After the dancing there, it was time to stuff ourselves with Cornish Pasties, then move on to Looe
|This is Looe
At one point we set up a massed East Acton with members of the other sides in the spot, and some of the audience .
Here are the long and complicated instructions.....
|Then it gets under way, and they all did very well
|The audience watched carefully
|This little girl was very enthusiastic - as was Jess, further down the set
|The next day was spent in Kingsand and Cawsand
Here we are in the same spot as we were pictured in the 2010 scrapbook
|Ann just couldn't stay out of the sea
|Tony & Claudia spent some time on the beach
|After dancing at all the pubs in Kingsand and Cawsand, here we all are at The Crosskeys
|During the weekend we spent some time in The Weary Friar
Great food and a nice ambience
|And visited Rame Head - one of the most beautiful places in Cornwall
|In previous years we climbed out to the chapel and played some music.
Old age limited our enthusiasm this time - maybe in 2020!
|The view back owards Plymouth Sound
|Jess made a little friend
|We amused ourselves on the bus, taking selfies like a bunch of teenagers
