I've just heard from Richard Hannah who says that on Saturday 10th July at 2 pm, More Hall Convent Residential Home there will be their Annual Garden Party. While you enjoy strawberry and cream teas, there will be entertainment from Ragged and Old Morris and the newly formed Uke Stroud ukulele Orchestra (see photo) as well as Musical entertainment from Norma Mills and The Bees Knees!
Richard writes: "If you go down in the woods in the grounds of More Hall you may catch a glimpse of the teddy bears having their own picnic and you could follow the Teddy Trail to win a prize. There will be various stalls for all ages featuring teddy bears, plants , bric-a-brac etc. and skittles. Amongst the food on sale will be the Sister’s rightly renowned Samosas which always sell like hot cakes! UkeStroud is a group of musicians who meet regularly at Pitchcombe village hall to play Ukuleles and perform many different types of music and song not usually associated with the instrument. Their performance has been described by one critic as “stunning”. Ragged and Old are, despite their name, a local young Morris side who dance at pubs and village events round the area all summer and meet to practice at Bussage."
For those not local More Hall is in Townsend, Randwick, at the top of Cashes Green Road, the gated entrance is on the right, just in the road to Humphrey’s End.
