Our Short Weekend at Woodbrooke
10-11 March 2007
This was a very pleasurable weekend for all concerned as will be apparent from the pictures presented here. Several personal impressions of the weekend appear in the July 2007 edition of the Staffordshire Quaker.
Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre and Grounds
We arrive in time for lunch, so naturally it was first things first!
Then the children, and even some adults, could not resist a trip on the lake.
For them, the next exciting task was building the bonfire.
Other just sat and relaxed or went for a walk to Bournville to see:
The Carillon The Tudor Manor House The Friends' MH
On Saturday evening, we all got together and had a great time
enjoying the warmth of the fire and of friendship.
What a fire!! By morning - only ashes and memories.
Then it was back to work - in the Art Room.
Some tried to organise us, but a few old monkeys escaped
But some were dedicated to the task in hand,
and produced some masterly works of art,
including this map of Woodbrooke by Thomas our youngest participant.
After lunch, when our brains had slowed, we were challenged by Prudence
from the Leaveners to loosen up and think laterally.
Hello, this looks like hard work! It needs some thought.
Let's get down to it. We love work. We could watch it all day!
In conclusion, our short weekend break at Woodbrooke
was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, young and old.
It was a wonderful communal experience that brought
us all closer together.
