The Annual “Now I Am One” Garden Party 2017
On Thursday 13th July 2017 44 Ladies and Gentlemen gathered in Annette & Paul’s garden at Brafield on the Green for the fourth annual “Now I Am One” garden party and a time to remember loved ones who have died.
Annette welcomed everyone to the afternoon, and invited them to write a label with a message of love and then to tie it on the large Magnolia tree (which was bought by Bernard and given to Essie Hollowell over 60 years ago). This was then followed by a unison release of pink and blue helium balloons. Following a cloudy and overcast start of the afternoon, the sun came out and everyone settled down to tea, coffee and fresh cream gateaux and cakes. With the musical strains of James Last and his Orchestra in the background much talking and chatting continued with more tea and cakes being consumed.
The afternoon completed with everyone returning to their homes with happy memories and a single Rose to remember the afternoon.
