Despite the threat of rain, the annual summer barbecue went ahead as planned on Wednesday the 19th July at the rear of Fairoak’s Kendal office and apartments at New Bowman Yard.
The summer barbecue has become one of the highlights of the summer calendar of events and this year we welcomed over 20 Fairoak tenants and their friends and family.
“It’s always a great time for everyone to get together and socialise over a bite to eat and a few drinks.” says Lisa Chant, director at Fairoak Housing Association. “We were a little worried that we may have to postpone due to heavy rain being forecast but by the time we were due to start the clouds had parted and we were all blessed with beautiful sunshine and clear blue skies.”
There was certainly plenty of food for everyone, with a number of tenants also taking a turn to help flip the burgers and keep the barbecues well stocked.
Entertainment was provided by Steven and Alice who sang, and Kelvin who danced.
“The summer barbecue is just one of the many events organised by Fairoak throughout the year, all of which help our tenants to have a catch up in a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. All our tenants are invited and not just encouraged to attend but to actively play a part in the organisation and helping out on the day.” concludes Lisa.
