...after a lovely day on Saturday the inevitable clearing up begins; the books and bric a brac not sold went to a local charity shop, other bits and pieces we can use in the home and the crafts and jewellery left over will live to sell another day.. (autumn fayre/xmas fayre 31st oct) sadly no cakes, raspberries or sweets remained, just 7 coconuts and about 5 potted plants!
see you again next year, probably july 19th 2014 all being well.
our next big event is the charity golf day, on Friday 13th September, so if there are any golfers out there who would like to make up a team, please let us know...
it was too hot today at MEH for most of our residents; a few hardy souls made it out onto the patio, but generally most people retired to their rooms to a fan and comfortable armchair!
will leave you with a couple of photos from Saturday - taken at our photo booth, where takings were up 50% on last year!

The annual summer garden party yesterday was great fun. So grateful to all the kind and generous people who supported the event and helped on the day, especially our gardener Julian and his family - we couldn't do it without you!
Doreen enjoyed the music, and was up dancing to Doug Wake on the keyboard!
the kid's zone just gets bigger and better every year (glad I didn't have to pick up all those balls at the end!) thanks to Ross and his family.
mary and granddaughter ruby, created an amazing sweet stall and almost ran out of stock!!
The event was officially opened this year by the twins, Sheila and Di, who as the longest serving employee's of MEH, have contributed so much over the years.
