There was a great deal to do aside from enjoying warm but occasionally blustery weather: but the highlight was undoubtedly the storming of the Alamo (or at any rate, the re-enactment of the event) by some 500+ enthusiasts, including (so they said) one or two from the States whose forbears had actually taken part! The audience also included two Masons from California, pictured (right) with
some well-known Shropshire faces!
Not everyone camped or caravanned overnight, but many picnicked, a few tried out the beer tent, it was good to see so many of the charities there - and so many children! - and at length all went away with a wonderful sense of togetherness and happiness. Our thanks indeed to all who organised and assisted with this memorable event. Please send your special photos to me if you want them to be considered for the blog: please note that for reasons of space I can only publish a handful!!!
