When that rain came down on the morning of Saturday 6th October and stayed all day, we really did not know who would turn up at 3pm! We were delighted that 17 of us made it. And we enjoyed it! Dog walkers, families, and a resident who just wants to meet more people now that she has a baby.
We tasted delicious jams, chutneys and lemon curd. Milena’s corn dolly workshop was popular. We sampled apple cake and scones. And tried some herb teas. All this with the patter of rain and the melodious guitar and voice of Sam Castell Ward.
“I saw the poster and I wasn’t going to let the rain stop me! As a dog walker I’m used to be outside in all weathers.”
If you like the outdoors, there’s plenty of places in Plaistow for you to experience nature. And one of our jobs is to ensure there is more! We are now taking over the Green Gym licence and will be supporting the continuation of the weekly green gym workouts in the Orchard. More information to follow.
With thanks to Sam for the music and for those that donated jams, chutneys and cakes for us to try!
