The Friends' Summer Party
Date posted: Wednesday 20th June 2012
Friends enjoyed a lovely afternoon in the historic grounds of Bushy House. For once (of late) the weather was kind and the rain held off.
Bellini’s were savoured in the newly restored Orangery, and later a cream tea was served in the House.
A brain teaser set by Tom Blaney was a stretch for most of us, but a number of members applied themselves resulting in a few of correct answers. The star prize was a beautiful hanging basket crafted by the young people from the Stud Farm Nursery in Home Park.
Music was supplied by Brian Short and a fellow musician. They were a real hit and had everyone singing along in no time – many guests felt it was the best party yet.
A big thank to all those who helped to make the afternoon so successful and to NPL for allowing us access to this wonderful site.
