Open Day 2006

 

In spite of our fears, the weather was kind and sunshine after the rain made the whole area of Sunnyside Old and New look its attractive best. Apart from the gardens there was plenty to catch the eye, and provide interest for an hour or so. Children could paint flower pots, parents could find a wide choice of books at the second hand book stall, the Art Exhibition showed the allotments as an an attractive subject for artists, and the energetic visitors were offered a guided walk through Birtchnell’s Copse and round the whole site. Finding the scarecrows, entered in the competition provided extra fun and the Mayor must have had a difficult task in selecting the winner, Would it be the postman on the bicycle, or flower pot man? But the imaginative and truly scary crow, made by Gabriella and Dominic won the prize for best scarecrow on Sunnyside.

 

The many visitors were refreshed with homemade cakes under the attractive canopies and could take home with them fresh produce, and jars of homemade jam and chutney. It was a very worthwhile day but would not have been achieved without the tremendous hard work of Angela and her team. We are very grateful to everyone that helped make the day such a success.
