Fun for all the family in Dalkeith Country Park
More than sixty parishioners of all ages turned out for the Parish & Family BBQ at Dalkeith Country Park on Saturday 1st September. The kids enjoyed exploring the adventure playground while the barbecue was being prepared, and then we all tucked in to burgers, chicken, sausages, kebabs, halloumi and various vegetarian options, served with salad and a selection of relishes. Later we even got barbecued marshmallows! In the afternoon, as the clouds began to disappear, there was a game of French cricket, followed by a game of something more like normal cricket, and a break for ice cream, basking in the sun. A good time, as they say, was had by all – especially Mike and Anne White’s dog, Bella, who enjoyed the attention of so many young playmates. Special thanks to Louise for the organisation of such a terrific day out.
