A grand total of just over £2,150 was raised at the Fleet Pond Society Garden Party held at Grasmere, Chestnut Grove on Saturday 13th June. This amount broke all previous records for a volunteer-run event for the Society and is a tribute to all the volunteers who put their time into preparing and running this event.
The weather was extremely kind to us and a steady flow of visitors enjoyed the games, and bought cakes, bric-a-brac, books and plants. They then rested their tired feet, eating home-made cakes and cream teas, seated in the wonderful surroundings of Nicolette and Richard Pike’s beautiful garden.
PC Paul Franks and PC Dan Lehec popped in for a chat and showed the children their handcuffs and other equipment – no arrests were made!
The Fleet Pond Society Committee would like to thank everyone who helped make this such a successful fund-raising event, including the Fleet Lions and the Horticultural Society for the loan of the tables and games, respectively. Most particular thanks must go Nicolette and Richard for opening their beautiful house and garden up for us to share in a little piece of historical Fleet.
