Northala Fields Summer Picnic 24 June 2018

Northala Fields Summer Picnic 24 June 2018

The summer picnic of the SKA London, was organised in the Northala Fields, Northall. As the people came in, a few of them started warming up with a game of cricket, some others playing the volleyball and a few more by exploring the park by climbing on the mountains to have a glimpse of the London city.

 

At around 11.30am various delicious snacks were served to excite the taste buds in preparation for the later meal and also various drinks were served to beat the heat of the day. Soon after, the ‘Sack-Race’ was conducted to the children first, and then for the teenagers and thereafter for the men and the women. It was wonderful to see the sportive spirit in spite of a few of the participants losing their balance and falling on the ground. The game of ‘shot-put’ conducted for men and women to test the strength of their muscles was the right sport to have an idea as to how much they had to eat during lunch.
