More Hall Annual Garden Party 25th June

Winning milking competition at previous garden party!
On Saturday, 25th June, the residents, staff and friends of More Hall are holding their annual Garden Party. This year there will be the usual selection of stalls, including plants, cakes, Tombolas and bric-a-brac also there will be music, dancing, games and a chance to explore the grounds on our Nursery Rhyme Trail.

The afternoon will have a Nursery Rhyme theme including tableaux illustrating the rhymes around the garden and a chance to join in singing and dancing to these songs that are part of our heritage.

Throughout the afternoon musical entertainment will be provided by Norma Mills and her friends with featured spots from two local groups. The first, UkeStroud (who show that a Ukulele is a serious instrument). They will be joined by a new local Morris side – SCA Morris - made up of members of Stroud Community Agriculture; who heard that there was a shortage of Morris Dancers for the event and decided to fill the gap for us. Their appropriately named organiser, Sue Dance said “we are enjoying the fun of mixing traditional folk music & new dance steps and look forward to entertaining friends and families in the beautiful setting of More Hall Convent.”.

Refreshments will available all afternoon to eat in or take away. These will include strawberries and cream, cakes, ices and the famous More Hall Samosas.

The garden party is organised by The Friends Of More Hall, an informal group who organise events for the residents and raise funds for “extras” such as the recent railway trip they made on the GWR in Cheltenham. For more information about More Hall or the activities of the friends please contact Sister Elsy Poonoly (01453 764486). The Party will start at 2 pm on Saturday, 24th June in the grounds of More Hall. The entrance is just into Humphries End off the Randwick Road.
