It was going to be a family get together at Jell's Park. Sister; sorry, forgot, I have tickets for Babba. Sister in law and kids; sorry forgot, birthday party. Brother; sorry, I just have too much to do. So, just me, R, Mum and stepfather.
But we had a nice time. Jell's Park attracts a varied mix of people with different ethnicities and an even greater variety of informal sport being played. We saw pentanque, badminton, Aussie Rules, football, kite flying, tennis and cricket. Favourite moment was seeing Auusie/Chinese playing cricket.
If you haven't been to Jell's Park, the main picnic area has a very Australian feel, but walk a bit further over the rise towards the lake and it has a English Common feel about it.
