Well the rain held off and the sun made a few brief appearances. The day was well attended and despite the fact that the band couldn’t make it the conversation flowed and all enjoyed a fun afternoon.
Any more photos will be gratefully received and added to the gallery.
Much thanks again to Vittoria’s for the fabulous food and wine, and Happy Birthday Tony!
Due to the likelihood of buckets of rain on Sunday the 26th of August, the Annual Garden Party has been postponed until the 2nd of September at 1pm. Well, it is Scotland after all, please adjust your diaries and if possible, please let Eileen know if you cannot attend.
We had an excellent afternoon in the Garden with good food and wine, courtesy of Tony from Vittoria’s to whom we extend our heartfelt thanks. Thanks also to The 1761 Dixie Style Jazz Band for the music and the weather gods for occasional glimpses of the sun.
Herewith some pictures of the day, if there are more pictures out there, please get in touch we would love to add them.
But Oh, Madam Chair – “Where did you get that hat?”
Unfortunately due to ill health Bill Chalmers has had to retire from active involvement in the Friends. BIll has been a stalwart of the Friends for 18 years and we would very much like to thank him wholeheartedly for all he has done for the Garden. We wish him well.
