Not many pictures as the weather was inclement and we had to meet inside at Brian Angels's house

Once again we were lucky with the weather for our now very popular annual BBQ following the Branch Practice Church service and Half yearly meeting, the sun shone throughout the afternoon and evenings events.
This year we were invited to Tytherington by Tower Captain Fran Johnson who along with Val arranged the afternoons events.
The BBQ tool place in Fran's parents garden and we are indebted to Alice and Ambrose Johnson for letting us use their splendid garden for the event.
We must also thank David and Fiona Gayther  friends of Val and Fran the expert BBQ'ists who burnt everything to perfection.
So I think it can be said that along with the beer and all the food not forgetting the alcoholic jelly provided by Anita Mathews, and a good time was had by all.
Below are a few pictures taken during the evening. They are not strictly in order.
