Marjorie hits 95!

Saturday 14th June dawned a little cloudy and unsettled. Oh dear, perhaps an umbrella might be a good idea. What a shame, Friday 13th had been such a hot
cloudless day. But after 2pm, and a short spell of rain, we headed for what turned out to be a Glorious Glenfield Garden party. The umbrella stayed in the
car.
Over two hundred guests gathered to help Mrs Marjorie Smart, honorary member of Glenfield Gardeners' Association, celebrate her 95th birthday. Family and friends enjoyed exploring the large garden, listening to the live music, and raising money for Meningitis Now, Marjorie's chosen charity. Plants raised by Marjorie, and donations of flowers were raffled in aid of the charity, as was a colourful patchwork quilt.
A large planter filled with begonias and geraniums, which had been donated by the Gardeners' Association, when raffled, raised £195.
A superb buffet lunch was available all afternoon, three birthday cakes were cut, and hot and cold drinks flowed. Friendships were made, old acquaintances were renewed, familiar faces were identified, and a good time was had by all.
Thankyou so much Marjorie, for sharing your special day with so
many people.

PS. Marjorie's late husband, Henry, was a founder member of the GGA, and in 1988 he produced a booklet entitled 'The History of Glenfield Gardeners' Association' which makes very interesting reading. Recently reprinted, copies are available for sale at GGA monthly meetings.
