We all gathered at the northern end of Regents Park near Camden Town at 11.30 with a nice sunny day for the annual picnic. As usual the organiser had asked people to bring certain foods and drink, and there was a good turnout of 15 or so ULers past and present! Rupert’s exuberance meant that games were played thick and fast, most involving some sort of ball, which is not usually the case for the average sporty bellringer….! We played “down on one knee” and football and then started eating. There were relay races with kitchen utensils and some epic cricket with an old couple sitting on the bench as the spectators. As dusk fell we headed to Quinns in Camden for some further refreshments. The session was not epic but enjoyable nonetheless, and there were some reports of Hellen falling asleep in her cider…. Thanks to the organisers for another great picnic!
