On 17th June 2013, members enjoyed a visit to All Saints the parish church at Fawley. We were warmly welcomed by Ken Smith who gave us an interesting opportunity to the explore the church and churchyard. There were several CWGC graves and family graves commemorating air accidents etc from nearby Calshot. We then continued to Lepe where the earlier showers had cleared away.
