|Strawberries on the beach|
It doesn't exactly feel like midsummer, so all the more reason to enjoy a Swedish style indoor picnic at our next meeting this coming Tuesday 19th June. Did you know that strawberries play a major part in the celebration? Veronika will be telling us all about it. We'll bring some tasters of Swedish food, and we hope too that you'll be able to bring some food and drink to share to make it a lovely relaxed evening. And if it is raining, we have the doors open so we can listen to the raindrops falling on the mulberry tree and raise a glass to summer. Usual place - St Margaret's House, Old Ford Road E2 (behind the Gallery Cafe), 7.30pm for 8.00 start. Guests are welcome (recommended donation £3). And don't forget that we'll be picking out our members-only Denman Award winner so if you haven't thought about your entry, visit the Denman site this instant.
Our coffee morning on Friday 22nd June is a visit to the Edible Garden at the children's play park in Mile End Park (entrance in Locksley Street, off Burdett Road). Come along from 10.30am and have a slive of cake and a cup of coffee. The garden is coming along nicely - at least a bit of rain is good for that! There's more information on the Edible Garden blog and information on Phakama's Velela festival that weekend. Everybody is welcome. Do come. Rain or not, it'll be a lovely morning.
