On Saturday 9th July Outwood Post Mill on Outwood Common was opened to residents and families of Outwood Village for a “Pitch-In-Picnic”.
The idea behind this was to allow the new incumbents to get to know their new neighbours and fellow villagers and for the people living in the village to get reacquainted with Outwood Mill itself.
Fortunately the weather was kind and the rain held off for most of the day although there were one or two small spots rain during the afternoon this was interspersed with some quite warm spells.
The mill grounds was the setting for the Picnic and by 3PM the whole lawn was thronging with families and children enjoying the garden games and bouncy castle that had been laid on for them. Although it was noticed that one or two of the adults enjoyed the bouncy castle too.
There was plenty of food too as everyone entered into the spirit of “Pitching in” and the culinary delights ranged from lots of home made savouries, quiches and other munchies to some rather fine Chocolate Cakes and even Scones with Clotted Cream and home made Jam. All of which was accompanied by some good ales and bottles of champagne and of course the obligatory Pimms or Two (or Three or Four … we lost count!).
Both Ray and Tracy really enjoyed meeting everyone and whilst we might not remember all your names immediately it was lovely to see you all and get to know you better and it seemed that everyone enjoyed the Mill itself as many hadn’t been in the windmill before then.
The day was such good fun and such a success that we’ve decided to do it every year. So make a note in your 2012 diaries that the second Saturday in July is the Outwood Village “Pitch In Picnic” at the windmill. We are already planning next years event and we’ll have even more games, activities and fun lined up for everyone to enjoy.
We would like to thank everyone who came and made the day such good fun and created the community feel that Outwood is renowned for. Special thanks must go to Lloyd Hall for the loan of the Gazebo’s and the Tables and Chairs and also to Bill and Anne Morle who helped behind the scenes in “Connecting” us to the right people in the village for things we needed and for helping promote the event in the Outwood News.
Once again, thank you all and we look forward to an even bigger and better “Pitch In Picnic” Next summer.
Outwood Village Get Together at Outwood Mill
Mr. & Mrs. Windy Miller (aka Ray & Tracy) would like to cordially invite you all residents of Outwood Village to a village “Pitch In Picnic” at Outwood Windmill on Saturday July 9th, from 2pm onwards.
As many of you know we’ve recently taken up residence at the Windmill and we’d like to get to know all of our fellow villagers better. It’s an opportunity for everyone to participate and come together by bringing something sweet or savoury along to share with everyone else (Hence “Pitch In Picnic”). Additionally perhaps a bottle (or three) of your favourite beverage would add to the occasion.
Of course it’s a great way to get acquainted with the Windmill if you haven’t had a chance to look around it. Children of all ages are of course welcome. We’ll have some entertainment and activities lined up for the day so there’ll be plenty of fun and things to tire out the kids (and the adults too!).
This is an “Outwood Only” event and we’d ask that you would drop us a line at this email address – email@example.com so that we can get an idea of numbers.
There is no charge for admission as this is a community event designed to help the village come together and have a day of fun and get reconnected with its oldest resident and grand old lady – Outwood Mill
We look forward to meeting you all and enjoying a fun afternoon with you.
