The onset of steady rain could do nothing to dampen the success of the recent “Afternoon Tea in the Garden” event generously hosted by Deana and Gerald Emerton at Glebe House in Acton.
The true British spirit prevailed and remained undaunted in the face of the June weather as visitors enjoyed walks in the splendid and most beautiful garden and grounds, a raffle, plant and ‘bring and buy’ stalls as well as the opportunity to view part of the acclaimed collection of coaches which would have brought back memories for many of us. The tea, which had to be taken indoors, involved an amazing spread of home cooked food a great credit to all who contributed.
Our thanks are due to Deana and Gerald, members of the Inner Wheel, and all the museum volunteers who helped to make the event such a success. In all a massive £1215.00 was raised for museum funds.
