We all enjoyed a splendid day today at the old schoolhouse, Mount Stewart Estate, County Down.
The schoolhouse now serves as a base for the National Trust's Strangford Lough team.
In the morning fifteen of us tidied up the rear garden, digging, weeding and raking.
Fortunately for us it remained quite sunny, dry and mild.
There was an abundance of bangers, burgers, chicken legs, salad, puddings and good company.
During the afternoon we were delighted to receive members of the Trust's regional administration.
Later, we went for a stroll in the woodland behind the schoolhouse.
