The Dunton Reunion 2015

A lovely sunny afternoon was spent in the back garden of the Haven.

Everything was in place by 11:45 when the first guests began to arrive.  At least 40 people attended the event.  Some took the opportunity to soak up the sun, while others preferred the shade of the gazebos.  The Laindon Archive’s photographic display was as popular as ever and led to many enjoyable conversations about life in the plotlands, the many old and varied shops we used to have and of course old friends and families.

One guest brought along some home-made bread pudding.  While enjoying this delicious spicy treat, we all exchanged memories of our mothers making this when we were children and the beautiful aroma that it produced.  This led on to school dinners and we all enjoyed discussing our likes and dislikes.  A favourite was agreed upon; a tart, of cornflakes in golden syrup with custard.  I can’t think of anybody who didn’t love that gorgeous dessert.

This very enjoyable get together began to wind-up around 4:30 and by 4:55 everything was packed in the backs of cars to be safely stored away until next time.  I’m sure we are all agreed that this year’s Dunton Reunion was another total success and as always, a very big thank you to Audrey Carter for her excellent organisation.
