Scott Thomson (our Park Officer) offered HCG these tree markers to replace the very badly vandalised plaques, and, after a lot of thought and after one destined for Figgate Park was brought to HCG for the Committee to see, we were pleased to say yes.
They will obviously weather in time and we hope that the ‘wood’ rubbing of the leaves will be liked by young folk and other brass rubbing enthusiasts.
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?”
