With a very wet start to the day, and getting drenched putting up the two marquees we decided would work better, the sun finally came out as in the nursery rhyme and dried up all the rain.

People were a little sparse on the ground to begin with as the weather had obviously put them off, but after a slow start people came along to the rally and then consequently to buy cakes and tea.

We were helped by a continuous rotation of Beavers, Scouts and cubs with their parents who stayed for half an hour at a time to help wash and dry cups, which took the pressure of leaders cooking and serving as they were totally supervised.

All went well and ended in almost a sell out of food, but reliant on the weather as always, next year we have a full day of sun.

We will keep you posted.
