The last event all went extremely well and everyone seemed to enjoy the afternoon here at Barr. Jennifer Potter gave a fascinating talk on the Rose and we all learnt about the social and cultural history of the Rose – with some rather unexpected nuggets of information thrown in ! Many thanks to Jennifer, all our helpers, Tea Ladies and excellent Cake Bakers and not forgetting the ‘Gloomers’ (who blacked out the Church for us) and to the terrific audience who were so supportive.
The raffle went down a storm (thanks to the tickets selling skills of Caroline and Patrick Lorimer!) and great prizes donated by the likes of David Austin, Crocus .co.uk and Jane Packer – all very much appreciated.
Our next event will be a talk by Noel Kingsbury – do hope you can come !
