North East Associates
Summer Garden Party
- Wednesday 20th June -
Blue skies and sunshine, a perfect day for the first garden party for North East Associates. We wanted to try a different type of event so thought we’d try a Garden Party. We chose 'The Parlour at Blagdon' as the venue and it turned out to be perfect.
Prosecco, beer or soft drinks were served to welcome guests to the Willow Room, a lovely setting more usually used as a wedding venue.
Sixty-six guests had a relaxed time with friends and colleagues and there was certainly plenty of chatting. A delicious and plentiful buffet was served before our speaker for the afternoon joined us.
Angus Tavistock, the former head gardener for Blagdon Estate, tested our knowledge about local celebrities from the last couple of centuries. I think everyone learned something new! And the knowledgeable ones left with prizes.
The free raffle - Afternoon Tea for Two - at the Parlour, was won by Glen Taylor, very fitting as it was his birthday. This is an event I’m sure we will repeat in the future.
