11th September 2016 - Meads Village Picnic
They say a picture paints a thousand words - here are some photographs of this year's wonderful Meads Village Picnic. A huge thank you to all members of the Friends who worked so hard in the run up to the event and on the day. Thanks too to the Meads Community Association and St John's Bowling Club for their support and fabulous cream teas.
You will see that two mermaids paid us a visit together with a friendly young pirate sweeping the board at the Fancy Dress Competition.
The Silver Band was a tough act to follow but the R&B trio Red Jackson did so with flying colours. It was great to see the Petanque court being used too. The star of the show was the Helen Garden which once again turned itself into our village green by the sea.
The event was well supported not only by members of the Friends (including our MP Caroline Ansell) but also by Eastbourne residents both young and young at heart. The sun shone and the wind was still. It was a perfect day!
Prior to that it was:-
14th August 2016 - Picnic in the Helen Garden to watch Airbourne
Thanks to everyone who helped and visited our stall in the Helen Garden. And a huge thank you to those members of the Friends who baked the wonderful cakes! As the pictures show, they were fantastic and every last one of them was sold adding just over £92 to the funds. A special mention to Committee member Jan's two grandsons Sebastian and Alistair for baking and decorating a tray of cakes honouring the RAF - particularly fitting on the last day of Airbourne! The icing on the cake (couldn't resist that!) was the weather. For once it was more than kind - it was wonderful! A great day - thanks again.
