Thanks first to George Chambers, who helped me so much with the planning and organising, and Sue Cook, without whom the event wouldn’t have happened at all, though there are a couple of things she’s going to be teased about for some time to come! Thanks next to all the people who came: the helpers, the competitors and to Matt and Alan Halliday, whom it was a great pleasure to meet. Thanks finally to God for the weather!

Things didn’t turn out quite as expected, but children came from 12 different schools, they had fun in the sun, and they were given the kind of attention that we think will have them coming back for more.
