Zelzer Group BBQ

On a nice Saturday afternoon, the Zelzer group met for a group social and enjoyed a mild part of the English summer with a BBQ. This was rounded off by a very tasty Pavlova (thanks Anne!) before the inevitable rain drove us inside to finish the day of with some games and a few not overly talented but good spirited musical interludes (the guitarists need more practice but the drums sounded great).
