Since 2010 the Tristam family owned Walberton and Binsted Nurseries have enjoyed evolving a new August Bank Holiday tradition….the Annual BBQ. The event takes place on the Friday preceding the August Bank Holiday, when all staff attend a BBQ and ‘friendly’ afternoon football match at Binsted Lane before the long weekend.
Hosting the event involves setting up the venue, catering, cooking and remembering to bring the trophy….the Burn’t Banger Cup! 2015 was Walberton’s turn to host and despite a week of rain the sun showed up on the day just in time to dry out the pitch and make for a successful and sunny BBQ, manned by Kathy and Aussie Rob.
The Burn’t Banger cup was retained by Walberton, with a 3-1 win over Binsted. The team, comprising at various points Captain Simon, Andy, Tim, Evaldas, Rob, another Simon, Luke, Aliriza and Daniel, bought the ‘series’ total to 4-2 (to Walberton)! We look forward to Binsted hosting next year so we can relax and enjoy the afternoon ready for a 3rd win in a row!
