Social Secretary’s Report for Woodlarks 2018

Woodlarks  was an excellent week we must have had the best week that I can remember wall to wall sunshine. They get better each year..

We used the dining room at night for our many activities, and catching up with friends. But mostly we were outside this year. We introduced a craft night this year which proved popular. Some lovely table decorations were produced for our Posh Nosh meal at the end of the week. Our party theme this year was the Royal Wedding and there were some lovely wedding guests on display in all their finery and tiaras. We danced the night away to Dave Tanners disco. A wonderful Afternoon tea was produced on Friday and the new cooks, Jacqui and Tracey proved they were more than up to the job. Producing some wonderful dishes for us to try.

The outing to Paultons  Park was on one of our very hot days so plenty of sun cream was needed and away we went to enjoy the fun rides, cooling log flumes and tranquil gardens. Paultons has something for everyone and whether speed is your thing or the lovely gardens to walk round or catch a well deserved snooze in they really were truly beautiful this year. The work we saw last year being done has turned our amazing the Chinese gardens were superb.  

Over the week we managed to have a full programme with swimming, games in the pool, games on the grass, a fete, service in the chapel, Sailing on Frencham pond, which is always lovely a wonderful setting and a lovely BBQ to end with. The sail boats are fantastic, some adapted for the less able to be hoisted into. They zip across the water, with the breeze. Some of our campers take advantage of the lovely countryside and walk down to the pond, not for the faint hearted as its a good few miles. Shopping trip to Farnham, Community singing which gets better each year. Our special event this year was a hand made rocket competition! We also had a Teddy Bears picnic which was great fun and every one got to find a bear in the woods.

All in all Woodlarks was it's usual familier self lots of friends who swam, sat, chatted, relaxed, washed the pots, read, chatted, drank tea, chatted collected wood and generally enjoyed the love and friendship that is a NASCH Woodlarks camp.
