Group member Jeanne Nicholson said: “The setting was beautiful with ducks, geese, cats in evidence and even the sun shone for us.

“The only stipulation was that all those invited had to wear a hat for the occasion. Over 40 people made an effort and they all looked amazing, even the men)! It was a really jolly occasion - fun, laughter, and a never ending raffle which brought in £450. This was donated to Brain Tumour Research.

“We all thoroughly enjoyed meeting old friends, eating delicious cakes and drinking gallons of tea and coffee. A most satisfying day in the name of charity.”
