July 2016 Summer Garden Party.
It rained! But did it deter these hardy
West Beach residents?….No.
One lovely lady said she had enjoyed the occasion more this year, as it was cosy indoors. Yes cosy sums the afternoon up.
Willing helpers passed around an array of sandwiches, cakes, strawberries and cream.
After tea there was the usual team quiz, all the prizes were donated from from West Beach Residents.Thank you.
At the end of the afternoon, Don; a guest who had come to our first garden party with his late wife Yvonne in 2012,
read a touching extract from his diary about that particular afternoon which was held to celebrate our Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.’ He reminded us about the quiz which was based on the Royal Family, and how we all dressed up in red, white and blue. Thanks for the memories Don.
The garden party was never intended to be an annual occasion, however months later, Charlie another guest, who I passed in the street, called out “When’s the next party?” The rest is history as they say!
