The 2016 Annual BBQ took place at the Ashurst Lodge Campus of the Wessex Institute with the presence of numerous members of staff and friends of the Institute and their families.

The annual event was most successful in terms of numbers of participants. The weather, as usual, was excellent. The main course was roasted Hampshire lamb with a variety of salads and side dishes. Music was provided by a saxophonist, accompanied by a singer, which set just the right atmosphere for a very enjoyable afternoon lawn party.

On this occasion the event was enhanced by the presence of the local Member of Parliament, Dr Julian Lewis, who very kindly inaugurated the newly completed Laboratory building and a garage/storage facility opposite it.

The new building is in perfect harmony with the rest of those on Campus and provides a valuable addition to the facilities of Wessex Institute
