Summer barbecue for the beneficiaries and others

Captain’s Log…

On Sunday 18th August with the wind set fair and the waters lapping benignly, we held a nautical feast upon the river’s edge at New Cal (the ‘Captain’s’ Rotherhithe base). A handsome crew were assembled.

It was wonderful to see Denisa, our maiden beneficiary, and our two latest recruits, Rob and Xiao. Denisa is into the final half of the BBTG course now, still very much enjoying it and sounding very professional, as well as finding time to give useful advice to Rob and Xiao before they embark on the course in September. We also had Mary and Matt L and diverse other young of age and young of heart persons on board. All partaking of vittles and ale.

Like most of our GMIH events it was mainly a social occasion, an excuse to bring people together and have some fun as well as exchange information and advice. The weather was gorgeous, the view was delightful, and the food – courtesy of Keith and Julie, the Captain and his Mate – was delicious.

We must do it again soon!
