Keith Underhill: May 2016
In bright sunshine, to celebrate the 90th Birthday of our Queen and to celebrate the work of our Anna Chaplains, walkers set off from Marlfield, Borovere and Brendoncare, care homes at 11am on 21st April, via Orchard House and Lady Place and joining together at the Assembly Rooms.
Here, they enjoyed a well earned rest, a celebratory tea and a slice of the birthday cake which was cut by Councillor Pam Jones, our Town Mayor.
Thanks to Kate Dando for organising this most enjoyable day.
