A small but well formed crowd gathered for the 2016 Valley of Peace family picnic. The weather forecast probably kept a few away, but those who attended had a great time. Various kids activities took place including a treasure hunt, running race, egg & spoon race, 3-legged race, sack race and of course a lolly scramble. The lawn bowls was restricted to adults and was won fairly and squarely by team mates Lorraine Woodfield and Karen Smith. They demolished all opposition brave enough to contest them and no doubt their celebrations continued long into the night.

The Banks family was awarded this years prize for the most family members in attendance – including representatives from 3 generations.
