midsummer meeting

We will be celebrating Midsummer  at our next meeting on Tuesday 17th June, very apt as it has been a glorious sunny weeather. In Great Britain from the 13th century, Midsummer was celebrated on Midsummer Eve (St. John's Eve, June 23) and St. Peter's Eve (June 28) with the lighting of bonfires, maypole dancing, feasting and merrymaking.

We won't be lighting any bonfires but what we thought everyone could do was bring along some food to share - perhaps you have a favourite summery recipe that others might enjoy, or you may want to try out a new one. Anything you like really and we will have a Midsummer feast. We hope to be partaking in some crafting and will also be having a food and plants swap again, so if you have any home made goodies, seedlings or produce you would like to swap please do bring it along. 

We will also be having a mini-speaker from the forthcoming Roman Road Festival, an event taking place in, yes you guessed it, Roman Road!

Our evening opens at 7pm, the hall at the back of St Margaret's House,  21 Old Ford Rd, E2 9PL. Free for members and £4 donation for non members. Tea, coffee and wine will be available for a small donation and hopefully there wil be plenty of scrumptious food.

Our coffee morning on Friday 20th June will be at the Gallery Cafe in Old Ford Road, next to St Margaret's House. Gather from 10.30am onwards.

For our Afternoon Tea on 7th July, we'll be doing something a little different - one of the Victoria Park Tree Walks ( ou can download the leaflet if you google Victoria Park Tree Walk 2). The circular walk takes around 50 minutes, is not at all arduous and takes us around some of the more interesting and exotic trees in the west side of the park. Gather on the north side of the Pavilion Cafe at 3.30pm. We'll stop for a cuppa at the end! at a local cafe at the end of the walk. 

Fingers crossed for more sunshine.
