On Sunday 21st September a group of over 100 early risers waited patiently for
the sun to break through the mist and cloud, unfortunately the mist and cloud persisted with only
fleeting glimpses of light in the chamber.
Despite the disappointing conditions the group was good humoured and it
was a chance to met old friends and make some new friends.
