It was very disappointing to be informed at short notice that due to unforseen circumstances our speaker for 15th June had to cancel. This of course causes a dilemma, what to do, too late to get a replacement, could have a quiz but takes a lot of organising, in the end one of our members decided she would open her garden. 21 people attended paid their £1 entrance and 50p for a cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit as they would have done if they been able to hear the speaker at the hall.
The garden was looking very pretty and everyone enjoyed a stroll round admiring the roses and asking the name of some of the rarer plants. What was really nice was over tea everyone sat round chatting and getting to know each other better, what better way to spend a summers evening.
