Was I nervous!
Just three months into my chairmanship and we were hosting our first major event to raise funds for our chosen charity, Tenterden Memory Cafe.
Would the weather be kind? It might be Summer Solstice, but the recent storms did not bode well. Would we attract enough of a crowd? Would we raise a decent amount for the charity?
I needn’t have worried. The weather was benign – in fact, it was a balmy evening, the birds chirruping in the trees, the flowers frolicking in the light breeze. There was a really good turn-out too. The music played by local pianist Stuart Hithersay was melodic and mellow. Stuart Weller’s magic tricks were cool, and a great hit with the kids, and the food cooked by the Little Silver chefs was yummy.
It was lovely to see people from 9 to 90 enjoying the evening. Best of all, we raised a jaw-dropping £500.
Thank you to everyone at Little Silver, our friends at Tenterden Memory Cafe, and our members, their friends and families for helping us to make this such a happy and successful event.
