5 July 2018 – Soiree at Red Brick – Hosts Sue & Derek Pinner

This year 46 Club Members & friends were entertained with a splendid summer evening Soiree in the lovely gardens of Sue and Derek Pinner. It was certainly a Soiree to remember, one of the hottest on record with  the evening temperatures 30-25*C. Fortunately, it was a more tolerable dry heat & members soon enjoyed the shade as it moved quickly across the lawn with the sinking sun. Derek & Sue were complimented on their thriving flower borders & healthy vegetables in both the back & front gardens, in spite if the previous 5 weeks of hot drought. A lot of hard work watering & fortunately, no hose pipe ban – yet!   Members had the pleasure to chat to old friends and  get to know new ones while enjoying  a buffet and a glass or two of wine, with cold white more popular but almost as much iced cordial was also consumed. There was an international flavour this year with Derek & Sue’s visiting Australian relatives happy to talk about  gardening ‘down-under’ & thought it great barbecue weather. All in all, a most enjoyable evening.
