Held at Bayfield Downs, the home of ‘Gentleman Farmer’ John
Menu themes included:
— TOMATO SPECTACULAR: John Sexton has a superabundance
— WATERSPORTS: it is Regatta Day after all
–Wooden Boat Festival (Christine’s suggestion of Hard Tack with sardines and garlic was not taken up).
— ST VALENTINE’S DAY (Including the Massacre):
— DECIMAL CURRENCY DAY: those lovely coins with cute furry animals on them were launched 39 years ago exactly, as we were reminded at our quiz night last night.
