This year the Annual Soirée was hosted by Hilary and Martin Arthur in their delightful cottage-style garden at Wren Cottage, Thriplow. There was a good turn out and a happy time was had by all. Fortunately the weather was fine and dry and we were able to appreciate the garden in its full summer bloom. Good fellowship with a glass of wine and some finger eats were enjoyed with other club members and their guests.
The plant identification quiz prepared by Jane Dring had everyone exploring the garden and thinking hard. The winner of the closely fought competition was Shirley Wittering.
There were tempting prizes to be won in the raffle and the proceeds of this went to Perennial (the Gardeners’ Royal Benevolent Society). Our Gardening Club has supported this charity for many years.
All Club Members present were very grateful to Hillary and Martin for providing such a splendid evening in their garden.
