Annual Summer Party organised by the Brussels British Community Association at Royal Brussels CC.
Another great day at RBCC for the annual Summer Party organised by the Brussels British Community Association and sponsored by the British store Stonemanor. Over €1,000 was raised for good causes with donations going to four charities based in Belgium.
Despite the scorching heat and the temptations of the Pimm’s tent, there was also some excellent cricket to entertain the crowd, with our old friends from SHAPE taking on the might of the British Embassy. The Embassy called upon a few ringers from the Brussels Celtic rugby community; the latter group performed with commendable enthusiasm although it is fair to say that their results could best be described as mixed…
There was also some highly competitive off-pitch action under the watchful eye of MC Nick Compton. The tug-of-war, three-legged race and perennial favourite, the egg-and-spoon sprint, all caught the eye of the discerning sports fan. Appetites whetted, cakes, cream teas and burgers were all consumed in considerable quantities as the Fete drew to a close.
We are looking forward to seeing you all again at RBCC next summer!
