Neighbours Day provided a great excuse to have some fun and food, and to invite the wider Tatura community to join with the All Saints parishioners for a morning of games and frivolity following the morning church service.April 10, 2014 3:25am
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.’’
She said the gumboot toss continued to bring out people’s competitive sides, with the prize of the gold and silver gumboots going to Ray Thompson and Glenda McLeod.
‘‘The morning concluded with a barbecue and potluck lunch, where there was an abundance of food,’’ Rev Jude said.
‘‘The conversation continued around the tables into the afternoon, and both new people and old friends enjoying the event immensely.’’
