I've corrected my mistake following a missive from M:
 "....... people like me making a fuss about words when you've got plenty of  better things to do with your time .....  the pub only had keg beer, (no cask beer). Not the other way round.  I know it's just words  but we haven't gone to the dark side yet."


Leader: Santa

A great day out with Santa - walking from Caldecotte Lake through the villages of the Brickhills, singing carols at the three churches - Bow Brickhill, Little Brickhill and Great Brickhill. 

DFH and M were waiting at Great Brickhill with mulled wine and mince pies.  Very tasty.  It had started to rain a bit by then, but it didn't ever come to much.
Dave joined us for the afternoon - down to the canal, through Waterhall Park and back to Caldecotte  -  and a rummage in the sack for our Secret Santa pressies.

We met plenty of folk on the way - thanks to Alan for carrying the chocolates and offering them to everyone we saw.

By the time we got back to the pub M had already established that sadly they only had keg beer so she and Dave went off to better things. A few of us went in for a Xmas drink and  Santa finally got his Sundae - but it was a very disappointing Sundae after seeing the  Ultimate Sundaes served on a sunny afternoon in the summer when this venture was planned.

Mary brought some delicious Christmas fudge she'd made from a recipe in the Radio Times - it really did taste of Christmas - and by the time we got back to the finish M had run off copies of the recipe for the cooks.

It was a very enjoyable day - thank you Santa and your helpers.
