Fingers crossed for good weather on Friday 10 June 2016 as this is Summer BBQ night. Meet at the New Forest Anderwood BBQ site (SU 249 058) from about 5.00 pm. We will provide charcoal, some burger buns, mustard and ketchup and some soft drinks, but please bring something to cook, alcoholic drinks, salads or other accompaniments, relishes, etc that you prefer. Amplified music is not permitted in the forest, but acoustic music is OK, so bring along a guitar, mandolin, banjo or whatever. There will be a £2 per head charge to cover the costs of hiring the site. Some help with clearing up the site Saturday morning would be appreciated as it has to be spic and span by 10.00 am on Saturday, reading for that evenings revels.
For those who are interested, before dusk we plan to move on to Goatspen Plain car park in the hope of hearing, or even seeing, nightjar and possibly woodcock. We’ll not stray far from the car park, but a torch would be useful and definitely bring insect repellent.
