Summer picnic and ceremony to open new footpath 2011

This year, we had a very successful summer picnic (the sun shone most of the day!)  and were able to combine it with the opening ceremony for the new section of footpath.

The photo below shows Telford MP David Wright cutting the ribbon with the Lodge Field Group chairman Gar Simmons and some of the families enjoying the day.

The day included relaxed eating and chatting (many thanks to everyone who brought the delicious food). The nature walks led by Glen Bishton and John Box demonstrated how successful the group is being in terms of biodiversity. The childrens’ games were a huge success  and the tandem races challenged both adults and children!  The bicycle hub came up trumps with the tandems and Peter’s organising skills. And the day was held together by  Olugbala Kokumo’s Afro-Caribbean drumming.
