Reverend Jude Benton from All Saints said the morning showers cleared just in time, the weather was fantastic, and all had a great time, with many saying ‘‘we should do this again’’.
‘‘Thanks to the generosity of Greater Shepparton City Council’s activities in the park team, we had a number of interactive activities such as croquet, hopscotch and quoits,’’ Rev Jude said.
‘‘Phyl Bramley brought along a walking netball game, and with team members ranging from teens to mid 80s there was a great amount of laughter as the men battled the women, before the final points revealed a draw.’’

‘‘The morning concluded with a barbecue and potluck lunch, where there was an abundance of food,’’ Rev Jude said.
