After the Garden Party…

July 12, 2010

Just a quick update on Sundays event.. We had a glorious afternoon in the company of friends and supporters in the Labour Club Garden, with not one but two live music acts – Sam on violin followed by Glossop based folk duo Tao of Steve, both last minute additions which really added a bit of gravitas to the occasion!

The sun shone and we managed to all eat lots of food (thanks Ian for barbeque minding and to everyone who brought along delicious salads), drink some drinks (big thanks to Cathy who minded the bar all afternoon), sew together some bright and breezy bunting as well as variously knit and chat and enjoy being out in the garden.

We rounded off the afternoon with a raffle presentation and (sort of )ceremonial draping of the wonderful bunting in a tree. This has some some truly beautiful handcrafted triangles in it and we’ll certainly be getting it out on show at future events, and hopefully adding more in future as we pick up new skills along the way.

And we made some money as well! So a great success all round.

A huge thankyou  to everyone who came along, helped out or contributed in any way. We had a lovely time and look forward to meeting up with you all again very soon!
