A "beautiful old fashioned burger" was a crowd pleaser at the Stone Soup Community Day on Saturday, Stone Soup volunteer Kathy Parnell says.

The weather was stormy, so the gathering was moved to Tawhero School and the turnout was smaller than usual. People from the surrounding Gonville-Kokohuia area made a small donation and were treated to lunch and activities for children.

Stone Soup days are run by volunteers and lots of people helped them set up and pack up. For the second time this year the lunch was supplied by members of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, also volunteers.

Asked what they wanted on future Stone Soup days, attenders said the food was less important than the chance to get together.

"They love it, but they also love just catching up with cousins and neighbours and us. For some people this has been their special thing that they do get out of the house for every six weeks," Mrs Parnell said.

There is one more Stone Soup day this year, and attenders can expect a few changes next year.
