PB050005We were made welcome at the Prince of Wales, they even left a bonfire for us! Amazingly this was still smouldering after the Halloween event the weekend before, the steel frame was the legs of a wicker man!

The big attraction this weekend was exactly that - The largest WW1 aerodrome (Stow Maries) only a short walk or longer ride away.

The sun shines over South Woodham Ferrers as we approach and then cross country back to base as dusk approaches. More good food and drink consumed as we continue celebrating three members birthdays.
