Collation Picnic 2013
The collation in honour of St Benedict Biscop was a delightful afternoon. The food was delicious, varied, and more plentiful than we could eat in spite of our enthusiastic efforts. Singing was a popular pastime for many - Laudemus, Il Bianco, Margot, My love hath vowed, Dona nobis, Verbum Caro, Rose red, Red wine and white wine all made an appearance - and all present had a delicious lunch and a relaxed afternoon by the sea.
Date & Time: Saturday 12th January 2013, from midday, with an open end time pending weather, activities, and enthusiasm.

What it is:
Essentially, a catered picnic.
Enjoy an afternoon at the beach as we celebrate the Saints' Day of St Benedict Biscop, patron Saint of collectors. A fine lunch in the style of a 16th century Italian collation will be provided for your predilection. The event will be relaxed and open-ended, however, suitable activities may be presented to delight and entertain, depending upon the whim of the participants - perhaps some outdoor games, a relic hunt, or a paddle in the water....
