It was the BAG annual Opening Evening last night and as ever the weather teased us right up to the last minute, with showers and torrents in equal measure. However at 6:30 it all turned a bit calmer and our loyal supporters turned up in droves to look at progress, have a chat, and to partake of a burger or a dish of chili, washed down by a beer or two! Everyone was impressed with the progress since last year and gave words of encouragement to keep up the good work. There were over one hundred guests who thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Their generosity meant that we had over £1000 to add to our funds. Thank you!
And to the volunteers who did all the hard preparation work during the day, some of which were virtually on their knees by the end of the day - a double thank you.
Here are some pictures from Jo and Richard O'Keeffe - a record of a great evening.
