What a wonderful evening!

It was brilliant to see so many of you join us at our annual Garden Party behind the gates of The Old Parsonage in Otford High St on Saturday. Courtesy of Tom and Anita Watson we enjoyed an evening of drinks, canapés, sunshine and great company, with our own violin duet playing. The raffle raised £205 in aid of the Ukraine Crisis Appeal, while  proceeds from ticket sales will go towards our village projects. Thank you to everyone who attended, to the team of volunteers who made the event possible and most of all to our kind hosts.

Here’s some of the lovely feedback we’ve had from those who attended:

“What a grand occasion!  Our thanks to yourself and to everyone who helped organise such a lovely event.  It made me realise all over again what a wonderful place Otford is to live in!” (Alan)

“Just a word of thanks for a delightful evening yesterday at the Garden Party… We spent a very entertaining time chatting with people we know and some we didn’t – but do now! Very well organised all round, and a delicious range of edible goodies was constantly on stream. So again, thanks to you all and to your helpers and of course our gracious hosts. Such a perfect setting, too. Another corner of the village that we don’t usually get to see!” (Jeff)

“Many thanks to the generous hosts for letting us into their lovely garden. A very enjoyable evening!” (Jo)

“Thank you Otford Society, Tom and Anita. A lovely evening with excellent company.” (Sarah)
