Talk with Wine, Sunday October 13th

This "Talk with Wine" featuring local author Jeremy Seal was a great success. Jeremy gave an extremely engaging talk about his experiences canoeing down the River Meander across Turkey and provided fascinating insights about life in Turkey. Do visit Jeremy's website at http://www.jeremyseal.com for more information.

Over 70 people attended the talk which as well as wine featured some Turkish dishes. The event generated over £670 towards the mantenance of the Millennium Green.

Many thanks to Claire Smith and Anne Claxton for organising the event.

Talk with Tea, Saturday August 3rd

The Tea and Talk on Saturday afternoon was very well attended, in fact a sell out. All seventy five tickets (maximum number allowed at the Centre) were sold by the end of last week and unfortunately we had to turn people away.

Amy Frost, popular as ever, did not disappoint. She gave a fascinating talk entitled ‘Rediscovering Beckford’s Landscape at Lansdown”.  We learnt how Beckford created a garden and ride extending from his house in Lansdown Crescent all the way up to his Tower on the Lansdown plateau. The talk was illustrated with photos of maps, prints and present day photographs. Amy told us about the exciting future plans for development and restoration work at the Tower and the Beckford landscape.

After the talk those attending were able to meet up with neighbours and old friends to enjoy a cup of tea, sandwiches and cakes.

The profit realised was almost £800.00, a good sum to be put towards the refurbishment of the leaking pond on the Millennium Green. This work is due to commence in early Autumn.

Many thanks to everyone who supported the event and particular thanks to all those who helped by making cakes and helping on the day.

We plan to have another Tea and Talk event in October and then another next Spring with Amy as the speaker. Watch the website for details.

Lansdown Open Gardens Sunday June 30th

The Lansdown Open Gardens on Sunday June 30th was a great success. The weather was perfect and six beautiful gardens were open. Over 260 visitors visited the gardens and enjoyed delicious home-made cakes and tea as well as purchasing plants from the plant stall. The day raised over £2000 towards the upkeep of the Millennium Green and for the renovation of the pond.

Many thanks to the garden owners for opening up their gardens and to the many helpers who made the day such a success.

Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, April 21st

The sun shone brightly for the Easter egg Hunt on Sunday afternoon. With temperatures in the mid twenties many families turned up to enjoy a very successful community get together.

Many thanks to Rosie for organising the egg hunt and the making of bunny ear head dresses. Thanks also to Ellie and her two ponies, Danny Boy and Delilah who trudged up the hill from central Bath to provide very much appreciated pony rides. The children had a lovely time.

Many thanks to everyone who helped to make the afternoon such an enjoyable time.
