That busy day in Old Buckenham

Loads to do
The blog editor was out and about in the hot sun for quite a lot yesterday. And he managed to miss all the football hysteria.
First of all there was a session of litter picking on the Green. Thanks to the work done a couple of months ago, there was not so much to pick up this time.

Then it was off to the Chapel Green School fete, the first to be held on their new site in the village. There were stalls and other activities to help you spend your money as well as the opportunity to go on a tour around the school to see all the facilities. The outside areas, now nearing completion, are most impressive and it was surprising that more Old Buckenham residents didn't take the opportunity to see them at close quarters.

After a quick diversion to New Buckenham (it was their village show) it was back to Old Buckenham for the evening Garden Party at the home of Barbara and John Frost. This is an annual event to raise funds for All Saints church, this year with an emphasis on the 'Raise the Roof' fund-raising. There was glorious sunshine, wine, an over-active tombola and a huge raffle as well as all the tempting food so everyone had a great evening.

The blog editor had a film to go and see in New Buckenham so he left while events were in full swing. No doubt it went on well into the evening, succeeding in its purpose of raising money for All Saints and its roof.
