pleg picnic 6jan2019 x150

PLEG’s annual picnic for 2018 was held on Sunday 6th January 2019

Our picnic/BBQ was originally planned for Sunday 16th December but this was cancelled due to the deteriorating weather forecast. It was considered that in the event of forecast heavy rains the access track would be muddy and slippery. Also, old growth woodlands are unsafe in thunderstorms due to the possibility of falling trees and branches.
