Picnic in the Park Saturday 23rd June

Great Picnic in the park. Community dancers and live music were exceptional and kids enjoyed every minute. They all loved their Bari Bear tees nearly as much as the ice cream! 

Open Gardens Saturday 2nd June 

Our 3rd annual Open Gardens in aid of the Parks was held on Saturday 2nd June. and we were blessed with a warm dry day with only a light breeze.
As a consequence we had a record number of people visiting 12 lovely and varied gardens, including 5 Castle Terrace pictured below.
