Family Fun Day 2011

We had a great turn out at our first Annual Family Fun Day. Although the weather looked a little dodgy in the morning, by lunch time the sun was out and the saus-o's were sizzling. Thanks to everyone who came and especially those who helped out.  We saw some excellent cricket skills, some competitive 3-legged racers, heard some funny stories and listened to some amazing little singers belt out "give me a home among the gum tree".  With plenty of ANZAC bickies, lollies and sausage sambos, everyone left with full tummies and some memories of  Down Under. If you could not make it this time, we hope to see you next year mates!
