After weeks of hot dry sunny weather, the Bunbury was shot in much cooler weather with strong winds and thunder showers in the afternoon. Despite this, we won the match against Fosse Company of Archers in the morning and a number of hardy souls stayed on to complete the Bunbury in the afternoon.

Thanks to Chrissie for organising the shoot and to Kate, Kathryn and Zaskia for keeping us all fed and supplied with drinks.

The results can be found here.

 

The Chairman (Carl Harding) collected a cheque for £160 from Waitrose in Stamford as one of their Community Matters good causes in May. Thanks to everyone who put their green tokens in our part of the collecting box and to Marie Pears for arranging for us to be one of their good causes.

In the words of another well-known supermarket "Every little helps!"
