PICNIC IN THE PARK 2011  

 WERE YOU THERE ?

Our first Picnic in the Park was a RESOUNDING success. On Friday evening we went into the Club for a drink and were treated to a marvellous recital by the joint Llay Miners Club  and The Camping & Caravanning Club  Bands with some banter from the conductor who invited some of the audience to join in. A few youngsters readily came forward some with grandparents and the Kazoos were a big hit. Also Di & Bubs rendition of There’s a Hole in My Bucket caused a smile. Saturday some members went to Llangollen to visit the Eisteddfod, others into Wrexham. Late morning we had torrential rain. Mid afternoon blue skies and the sun appeared staying with us until after 9pm. At 7.30pm we were all sat around the Band Stand ready with our flags and banners. We were treated to a great outdoor performance with a larger number of bandsmen & women, there were solo’s from young soloists playing Share My Yoke and Concerto de (Orange Juice) then the Euphonium duet Calon Lan finishing at  almost 10pm. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. By the time that we had all chatted it was 10.30pm getting back to our vans.  Sunday morning at our usual morning coffee some dedicated band members played while we all had our coffee & biscuits. Sunday evening many of the vans went home leaving 16 units to enjoy another lovely evening.  Thank you to everyone for making this a successful rally and extra thanks to the Bands
