Easter Sunday at Foxton

The Easter Bunnies came calling on Sunday morning at the rally, complete with a basket full of golden eggs.  Thank you very much!

As usual at these sort of rallies over the Easter Weekend, a church service was arranged for Easter Sunday.  Our very own caravanning Reverend, Derek Keatley, took the service, and a fair sized crowd of campers gathered in the hall.  Thank you Derek, for providing this service for your fellow caravanners and friends.

Later in the morning I climbed some stairs up the side of a building which gave a good view of all the assorted caravans and motor homes attending.  There were a few more vans parked around a corner or two, but this was the bulk of them.

Our spot in the school grounds

Sunday evening saw us gathered at the local RSA for a meal out, just a short walk across the grass, squeezing through a gap in the fence, and we were there.  With 90 or so guests for dinner, the kitchen staff did very well indeed to get us fed.  To make things simpler, the chef offered a choice of two mains, roast beef or fried fish, plus desserts.  We both enjoyed the roast beef, melt-in-the-mouth tender beef, tasty rich gravy,  with a great selection of roast vegetables.  Those who had ordered fish said it was delicious too.  It was a great night out indeed.

I've enjoyed reading about your Easter Rally. It sounds like you all had a fabulous time and no one went home hungry.
