Sun and Fun at the Garden Party

Posted on: August 2nd, 2012 by admin

Birdsworth is now official! He was formally unveiled at our Garden Party by the Chair of Fylde DFAS, Hilary Alcock, on 21 July. And what a lovely day it was. The warm and sunny weather was perfect for a  party in our beautiful garden and it was a pleasure to welcome both local residents and visitors – we did get some passing traffic from folk on their way to the Open Golf, who nipped in for a quick coffee and a cake whilst en route.

This year’s event was a little different from previous years as we involved Fylde DFAS (Decorative & Fine Arts Society) and their ‘It’s a Birdie’ project. As well as unveiling Birdsworth, books were also presented to the children from Home Start Fylde, who have also been participating in the It’s a Birdie project.

Fiddle Faddle entertained us in the marquee, while Nochas de Salsa demonstrated their salsa skills. There was plenty of entertainment for the children too – face painting from Funky Monkey, badge making with the RSPB and a very lively puppet production of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.




We can’t do all this without your help, so a very bigl thanks to all who gave up their time to make this a very special event. And a specially big thank you to those people who made cakes – what a lovely selection!

Lovely cakes!
