Mary and Peter Paine treated us to an amazing selection of photographs from their Uganda trip this year. Because the country is so poor we kept the refreshments simple but monkey nuts and fresh pineapple went down very well. The open bar helped – thank you Leigh and thanks to Dave, too, for operating the dishwasher.
Mary and Peter have been asked to repeat their talk in Bacton – that’s how good it was.
Open Gardens Sunday 16th June 1 to 6pm
Maps will be on sale at the Village Hall for you to find the many gardens that are kindly opening. Margaret Horne, at Twynings, will have lunches and teas for sale, there will be music in the garden at Kisumu, plants for sale in some gardens and there will be lots to inspire budding gardeners too. Do give the afternoon a try.
The fundraising group of four will take a break over the summer but get yourselves ready for a rejuvenated group in the autumn. Our project is progressing well, looks as if it will be completed on time at the end of June and then we’ll have a grand opening by Bishop Mike to which everyone will be invited. A totally re-built gallery, accessible toilet, servery, water laid on and a cess pit too – wonderful! While this work has been going on we’ve decided on our next couple of projects – be prepared!
With thanks to everyone for all your help and support for many years
