Friends and volunteers barbeque

Saturday, September 5th 2009

Today was Foxglove's Friends and Volunteers Barbeque. We were celebrating the end of summer and looking forward to the winter season.

70 people turned up to sample the delights of Namik and Damon's wonderful cooking. We were lucky with the weather which looked like rain but ended up cool, windy - but dry.
