Summer Social Meeting at Bath City

Summer Social Meeting at Bath City Farm, July 17th 2015

A group of 16 of us, both young and not so young, gathered at Bath City Farm on a bright, warm evening following heavy rain earlier in the day. Although we were smaller in number than hoped, we enjoyed a convivial evening together , which lived up to its billing in terms of what we saw, heard, smelled and tasted. Paul Wilkins, Phillip Delve, Marion Rayner and I all brought examples of our artwork, and enjoyed engaging in conversation about them. Phillip Delve and Paul Wilkins brought in some spectacular examples of moths trapped beforehand, and these were especially admired by the children present, as was the display of grasses and picture quiz brought in from recent outreach events. A raffle was held and numerous prizes, from books to bottles, won, Swifts screamed through the gathering dusk, and we watched a spectacular sunset, after which numerous bats started to make their appearance as we made our departures.
