Our annual picnic welcomed a change of venue. Instead of Wanstead flats, we gathered st Forest Gate Community Garden. A picture of colour, and beauty in the heart of Forest Gate.
About sixty of us descended on the garden, armed with sausage rolls, homemade goodies, and some strawberry Pimms for the last meeting before our summer break.
It was lovely to be sitting amongst the flowers and plants , grown by local people and volunteers in Forest Gate.
We chatted, and new members and visitors got to meet other women. The time flew by, – we could have spent a lot longer in the garden. We did however continue the party at the Forest Tavern( where some of us were the last to leave. )
I hope all of the first time visitors and women who came for a second time join our lovely, and lively WI.
I would also like to thank the steering committee from Forest Gate Community Garden , for allowing us to hold the picnic there.
Please note, no meeting in August, BUT hoping to go to Eltham Gardens sometime in August.
