In the meeting Phil, our Chairman, summerised a four page report he had written detailing all our achievements over the last 12 months. It was really surprising to look back and really take in all we have done. Phil thanked all the people who make the Garden possible and then rounded up the meeting by looking to our exciting future.
After the meeting, Kev played us a live set on his guitar, the children designed their own tealight holders and the BBQs were lit!
Food time came and there was loads to go around. Burgers, sausages, veggie lasage, chilli, potato salad, coleslaw all followed by cake! Thanks to all those who donated food!
A raffle was drawn after lunch. Prizes included:
* a book and a voucher by Barton's Bookshop of Leatherhead
* Fish and Chips for four from The Lemon Plaice, Leatherhead
* flower arrangement by Eden Florists, Leatherhead
* jewellery and a massive teddy by Amanda
* a hamper by Hannah
* smellies and wine from Pat
Thank you all for your very kind donations.
We followed the raffle with a willow weaving session were we discovered some amazing talent in Leatherhead! Hearts, flowers and butterflies were made.
Winding down the day and we all agreed it was very successful!
We must thank you all for your help and support of the Leatherhead Community Garden. The Garden is nothing without the people of Leatherhead coming together to make it work. We are looking forward to another jam packed year! Thank you.
