A scene from the movie “Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears” (1980)

Come and join us for this traditional May Bank Holiday outing! Enjoy the fresh air, good food and company under the sun. Come along to relax, connect with our local community members, and share conversation, food, and drink.

PLEASE BRING: Food for the barbecue (meat and vegetarian options), snacks and drinks to share.

You might also bring footballs, frisbees, badminton sets, skipping ropes, guitars, etc.

We aim to meet in the BBQ area of the park at around 11:30, have a BBQ – with food and drinks to share – between 12:15 and 15:30.

WHEN: Monday 2 May, 11:30 – 17:00 (BST)
WHERE: Wandlebury Country Park on the Gog Magog Hills – Forest area BBQ, Babraham, Cambs CB22 3AE

Please note that the location of the BBQ in the park will be different this time if you are familiar with our regular place. The new location name is “forest area bbq” and it is just opposite our usual place across the grass field. We will send a detailed map nearer to the event.
