THE 2018 GARDEN PARTY

Rita and Brian Stone generously opened their garden and house to the Choir for the 2018 garden party on 30 June.  Guests arrived by car to a warm greeting by Brian to be directed for parking, and thence to the party where tables and chairs had been set out, making as much use of shade as possible.

 

Jean, Helen and, of course, Rita were busy assembling the delicious supper, while Brian was busy launching the first game of croquet.  A thoroughly enjoyable evening, and thanks to all those who made it possible.  Click on the photograph to see many more:
