Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make yesterday’s garden party so wonderful, from booking the garden to ordering glasses and prosecco to decorating the garden so beautifully and baking delicious food  – and to all our members, speakers, local dignitaries and friends who came along and supported us!

The garden gurus who volunteer their time and green fingers have done a wonderful job making our edible garden look so beautiful, helped by the ‘Botanicals’ (the Botanic Gardens gardeners) – there would be no garden party without them.

Thanks too of course to Nick and his wonderful pramophone!


Congratulations to all the raffle prize winners – and thanks to Rachel Demuth of Demuth’s Cookery School for drawing the winning tickets.

Guests really rocked the regal look with their shiny crowns, and special mention on the dress front must go to Andrea with her amazing bunting skirt (with net petticoat!) and to the floral outfit Kitty (queen of the smoked salmon sandwiches) wore so elegantly…complete with dragonfly! Not to mention the gentlemen of Banes Parks and Gardens, who scrubbed up rather well don’t you think!

Funny how some photos always manage to turn out perfect for a caption competition!

We are already looking forward to next year’s garden party – 5th July 2017, put it in your diaries!

…and please don’t forget we are not having a Bath WI meeting next month! Wishing everyone a very happy Summer and we will see you on 7th September back at St Mary’s.
