Sun shines on Church Garden Party

Glorious sunshine greeted several hundred people at the annual Church Garden Party in Caistor yesterday, creating plenty of demand for town Mayor Carol Mackenzie as she served ice creams.

And Caistor in Bloom – organisers of the Open Gardens Weekend in aid of the Red Cross – also say they are delighted with the turnout so far.

The Church Garden Party was held at Holly House, off High Street, the home of Robert and Ros Jackson.

As the Garden Party was also on the Open Gardens route, it ensured plenty of visitors. They browsed dozens of stalls, ate Ploughman’s Lunches, cakes, and strawberries and cream, and sat down to watch performances by children who are being coached in music by Caistor teacher Nick McCann.

For many of the visitors, it was an idyllic afternoon, chatting with friends while their children explored Mr and Mrs Jackson’s garden.

While run off her feet with demand for ice creams, the Mayor demonstrated her capacity for grace under pressure – a characteristic that will no doubt serve her well in her political life.

Money raised will go towards church funds.

The Open Gardens Weekend, featuring a chance to look round 20 privately-owned gardens in Caistor and a Scarecrow Trail, continues today.
