Garden Party at the Old Vicarage

An annual event, though varies when held.

It could not have been better weather, hot and sunny, which makes all the difference for a garden party. Last year it was cold and raining.

I was pleased to find my friends Curries from Home as they do excellent  food. Everyone was commenting how good the food. Last year someone doing awful food.

Unfortunate Loseley ice cream not Dylan’s ice cream. Loseley is not quality, nor does it come from Loseley House as everyone is conned into believing. It comes from a multinational company that bought the name. Dylan’s ice cream is quality. I said I would find out why not there.

I suggested invite Bedda excellent pasta and Karuna Coffee excellent coffee.

This year a lot of activities.

Tree climbing. It was incredible seeing little girls at a guess under five, climbing up a rope up a tree. Earlier slightly older kids had climbed a long way up the tree.

In the grounds beehives. These were there last year, but this year several that were polystyrene boxes. I do not know if new form of hives, or maybe shipping boxes.

Different bands playing, were all very good. A group of kids, the maturity of their music way beyond their years.

I spoke to the first lot that played, maybe not the first but first I saw, suggested they be on bandcamp. They are going to look into it.

The last lot, again kids, but slightly older, jazz, but again very good. One playing an electric bass.

All three bands I saw would be ideal to play at The Village in Guildford, as it needs quality live music.

Live music finished at nine,  music continued. Down by the river a bonfire and acoustic guitar.

As it turned dusk, braziers were lit, giving the impression of a medieval encampment.

As always Lu, not sure if spelling correct, hosted an excellent party.
