HISTORICAL SOCIETY HOLD THEIR GARDEN PARTY


Looking down the garden as the afternoon got under way and members began arriving .

On Saturday the 11th August 2012 our Historical Society had their Summer Garden Party, courtesy of Paul and Christine Harman who allowed their garden in Point Clear Road to be used by the Society for this event.
The weather was bright and sunny, evidenced by the hard shadows to be seen in the photographs, which was a blessing after so many outdoor events in the village were spoilt by rain and strong winds.
The Garden Party which is also a fund raiser is held for members and their friends to enjoy each other’s company in the most pleasant of surroundings./FONT>

Another group of members enjoying a sit down after other exertions

Now where shall we sit?

Faeries and Wee Folk only!

A round or two of Croquet?

Book sale at bargain cover prices

Members had been invited earlier to provide Items they no longer used or for example, books they had read and no longer wanted, to be donated for sale to other members at the Garden Party. Since any profit from the sales went directly into the Society Funds, it was like buying something but putting the sale price in your own pocket!
A cup or pot of tea or coffee, freshly prepared was available at the stall. Various individual cakes, slices off a larger cake and sandwiches could also be purchased. The tea pot was willingly refreshed with boiling water if required at no charge


Our ‘canteen staff’ did a magnificent job catering to the various requests received

Christine Harman is our Chairman of the Historical Society, pictured here with husband Paul, both enthusiastic gardeners

Councillor Michael Talbot with his wife Marjorie, almost nodding off in the sunshine, but able to take these photographs

The water feature at the top of the garden, a paradise for garden birds complete with waterfall

This game of Croquet seems quite popular, but it’s important to know whose turn it is and which hoop to aim for!

Brick-a-back for sale. Pictures, odd shaped bottles, kitchen implements and figurines

Joe Cole presenting a prize to the winner. I think it is a small ceramic statuette of a cat

A lovely afternoon spent in the sun, playing games and eating cakes. Our thanks again to Paul and Christine for a most enjoyable get together. A good sum must have been raised for the Society’s Funds


Old fashioned ‘skittles’, definitely not the modern bowling alley style more probably originating from a pub
