The rain held off for just long enough and the Big Lunch went on, very successfully indeed – with lots of thanks due to David and Harriet Powell and all their helpers for their hard work. Loads of Elm Villagers turned out for a veritable feast and chit chat. We even had a visit from our Police Safer Neighbourhoods team (one of them had a particularly hearty appetite – no names mentioned). Let’s look forward to another such occasion.
Places for People and the Garden Society held an Elm Village Late Summer Garden Party at the South Canal Platform Space. Chefs from the highly acclaimed Moro restaurant were on hand grilling some wonderful middle eastern dishes. The party provided an opportunity to view the new green spaces development in the Village.
