May ’21 “mini-meeting” 1 at the Railway in the Valley of the Mill

With the easing of pandemic restrictions allowing meetings of up to 6 people in private gardens, a few of us participated in the first “mini-meeting” reintroducing physical meet-ups for the first time since December 2019 at the delightful end-to-end Railway in the Valley of the Mill, where we enjoyed distanced socialising along with coffee, biscuits and even a barbecue!
