We celebrated a sunny PROMTASTIC! on Sunday 25 June. A large crowd of about 70 people (volunteers and residents) turned out to join us for a walk-and-talk along our six gardens.
Bunting, speeches, clapping, picnics, community spirit, it was all on impressive display. Madame Mayor and her consort, together with a few of our councillors, would not miss the event either. What a great way it was to demonstrate our collective achievements over the past few years, and share plans for the future.
The Good Life Tim added a few riveting historical anecdotes and again pointed out the hilarious circumstances of how this area got its name Queen’s Promenade. In a sweep from the 19th to the 21st century, we could formally open all three new gardens and thank Richard for opening the Sensory Garden, Sarah for doing the same at Raven’s View Garden and the Mayor for rounding the event up by opening the Julian Meers Italian Garden.
A happy day for everyone, and lots of congratulations and photos on social media. Check out this link.
