Farm Womens Club

WHAT a happy evening we had at North Norfolk FWCs farm tour and barbecue, held at Francis and Marion Keys home in Thurning.

The evening started with a trailer ride down to the meadow where orchids and other wildflowers grow in abundance, and those who had sensible footwear were able to walk back.

Someone suggested I took off my shoes and held them above my head as I walked through the mud but I rejected the idea and got a lift both ways, enjoying the honeysuckle and wild roses and the company of mums, dads, children, grannies and grandpas.

It was one of those rare summers evenings when you could sit outside till late, and we did! To see the sun setting in the wide East Anglian sky and watch the horses grazing was a sight to behold.

It was a pleasure to renew the acquaintance of the members of the group and to enjoy a proper barbecue under the lime trees.
