Tea in the Park
TEA IN THE PARK: Celebrations in Queen's Crescent Garden
A great time was had by all who came to Queen's Crescent Garden on the afternoon of Saturday 25 June to celebrate the improvements completed with the government's Pocket Park funding earlier this year. As well as the very popular refreshment stall with delicious home made cakes, and a plant stall overflowing with plants of all descriptions, our friends from The Mosque organised a table top sale, face painting, henna painting, Arabic name writing and more! Prints relating to St James or Exeter, more widely, produced by our resident professional graphic artist, Aylwyn Bowen, proved a great attraction with many visitors hoping to win one in a special treasure map draw, and 10 people going away very happy! Theia, the Little Owl, behaved perfectly and drew much admiring attention, but the biggest draw of all must surely have been the choir of St Sidwell's C of E Primary School, who sang their hearts out for us all, with songs of the outside, sunshine and insects!
As well as familiar faces it was very good to welcome new faces and to receive many requests for membership, with appreciation expressed for all the Forum is doing.
Thank you to all who made this event such a success. As well as having a good time, a profit of £407.43 was raised for QCG funds! Well done everyone!
