On Saturday evening 16 August Butser Ancient Farm hosted a celebration night for the Hampshire team of the South Downs National Park Volunteers. A group of 40, comprising of volunteers and their partners, gathered on a beautiful clear evening in this fascinating site above Clanfield for a summer barbeque.

As reported on Clanfield Online a week ago the volunteers had recently erected the framework of a Neolithic Building for the Ancient Farm. Partly as a thank you for this work and previous tasks the volunteer group were able to tour the site and see for themselves the range of buildings and discover more about the archaeological investigations from the Farm director Maureen Page.

After the tour, the volunteers who include a number who live in Clanfield and Horndean enjoyed a delicious BBQ. All the food was bought locally and so their thanks and compliments must be passed onto the following businesses.

  • Graham Reeve of Reeve Butchers for his superb burgers and sausages. Yes, we all ate too many!
  • Nigel Hadwen of Clanfield Greengrocer & Florist for supplying the fresh produce. The salads were perfect and thanks for the cooking tips Nigel – the onions were just right!
  • Andy Shaw of Costcutter, who provided the bread rolls. They kept really fresh in those large boxes – thank you.

So the volunteers had a brilliant evening at a wonderful venue eating the best food locally bought. A splendid time was enjoyed by all.
