Alton Webteam: September 2017
Our eagerly anticipated visit to "Fairbank", Jane and Robin Lees' beautiful garden, could have turned out to be a disaster as, after weeks of glorious sunshine, the weather on 22nd July was wet and windy! However, Jane's warm welcome — and her delicious cakes — ensured that we all had an enjoyable afternoon, despite the weather. Jane had arranged the seating in her lounge so that everyone had a view of the garden. After tea, when we were waited on by her grandsons, most of us braved the (by then) light rain and enjoyed a stroll along the sweeping mixed borders to the orchard. It really is the most glorious garden and CAMEO members have expressed a wish to visit again — hopefully in more clement weather next time! Thank you to Rita and to John and Olive for helping with transport; and, of course, to Jane for her hospitality.
Our next meeting is at 2.30p.m. on Saturday 23rd September, when Bob Weighton will be returning for his third visit and talking to the title: "A Teacher in Taiwan." Due to popular demand this will be an open meeting, so all are invited to come along and hear the third instalment of Bob's adventures.
