What a good thing it was that we had chosen to hold our Reunion this year on 9 September; had it been a week later on 16 September, it would have been cancelled due to the petrol crisis which has affected the UK. Instead around 90 members travelled to Rushlake Green on a fairly gloomy, but warm day.
As usual, our AGM was held prior to a ploughman's lunch which was prepared by a band of helpers. There was plenty of new display material and demonstration of our Harmer database. It was an opportunity for cousins from all over the country to meet up; so plenty of talking and socialising took place. In addition, a lot of new information was acquired for our records and will be added to trees in due course. Some folks took the opportunity to visit the nearby village of Old Heathfield and the afternoon finished with our customary tea and cakes.
