Summer BBQ hits all the right notes

Not even a sharp shower could dampen the spirits at the Bromley Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and Rehabilitation Support and Treatment (RST) Team's Summer Barbecue, which recently took place in Blean Grove's garden.

As well as some fine chargrilled fayre served up for the past and present service users and staff of the Bromley RST team, they were treated to some smoking hot sounds from the ACT Music Group.

Andrew Moody (the man on the mic) needed no introduction; his repertoire, 'Hurt', 'Rockin’ In The Free World', and self-penned signature anthem 'Middle-class White Boy', went down a storm (quite literally, as the heavens opened in the true spirit of Glastonbury!).

Along with Andrew, service user Nicki Godfrey had a Blondie moment, singing 'Tide Is High' and 'Sunday Girl' whilst Kathy Lloyd was feeling the vibe with Bob Marley’s 'Jammin'.

All that was left for Phil Friel (Community Psychiatric Nurse, pictured centre) to do was tear things up with his killer guitar riff on Santana’s 'Jingo Lo Ba'.
