Hampton Wick Summer Garden Party 2018 “A really lovely afternoon!”

Hampton Wick Summer Garden Party 2018 “A really lovely afternoon!”

Ann Battersby recives her special award from HWA Chair, Mark Merrington

We were thrilled that so many people came along and enjoyed the Hampton Wick Summer Garden Party at the Library on Wednesday 5th September.

Local people met old friends and new, and much cake was enjoyed! Our star bakers – Nick & Janet Baylis and Jenny Bourne – produced a delicious array of goodies. We discovered that Nick is an “historic baker” for the National Trust and his biscuits made to genuine 17th century recipes were a real hit.

The Garden Party gave the HWA an opportunity to recognise the amazing work of the Good Fellowship Club which has, since 1962, organised weekly gatherings for older people of Hampton Wick. The regular Wednesday social events have been held in Bullen Hall since it opened during the 1970s.

With a little skulduggery (thank you David Lindsley!) we were able to surprise the three main Good Fellowship organisers with awards for Outstanding Contributions to the Life of Hampton Wick. Between them, Ann Battersby, Jo Lindsley and Mary Ramsay have contributed over 60 years of voluntary service, week in and week out, and we all owe them a huge debt of gratitude.

If you could spare a little time to help out with this wonderful local service please do let us know and we’ll pass your details along. Email info@hamptonwick.org.uk.

Thank you to all the volunteers who made the Garden Party possible and to everyone who came along. Same time, same place next year?
