Charity Garden Party

Thank you to all who attended our Charity Garden Party

On July 1st supporters of the charity Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I) gathered at Spring Barrow Lodge for a fund raising 'Garden Party.'

The evening was blessed with fine weather, and over a Pimms guests were able to enjoy the beautiful garden and speak to the garden designer and radio presenter Karen Gimson, tapping into her wealth of knowledge. A tractor and trailer ride provided a wonderful view of the 'Blackbrook Herd' of English Longhorns and the surrounding countryside.

Supper of roast Longhorn Beef and Pork , followed by Strawberries & cream, preceded a 'guess the weight' of 'Violet' the cow, the winner being Mrs Lindy Jee who came closest to the 1040kg that 'Violet' weighed in at.

John & Pat would like to thank everyone who took part in the evening from near & far who supported such a worthwhile cause, and the Leicester-shire R.A.B.I Committee for their help in making it such a successful event. A sum in excess of £2,000 was raised.
