At last, some photos of the event to share with you. I have to start with a huge THANK YOU to all of you for your support and contributions, all of which were put to very good use and helped to make our little event a huge success. The displays were manned over the August bank holiday weekend when we had the majority of our visitors. All the items were given a number and visitors could place a bid to buy whatever took their fancy in a sealed box.
A couple of weeks before the opening we started to stir local folk and patients curiosity when the tree on the roadside was wrapped in a clourful blanket. Patient’s would come into reception and ask “is the tree poorly’? There is a bus stop opposite and we would giggle as we watched people waiting for a bus chatter and point inquisitively.
I will break the photos down into a few posts so they are not too long starting with the floral delights and the bunting. We had lots of floral garlands and bunting around the grounds and building, it added a wonderful festive air to the whole event.
We used many of the flowers we were sent to create these flower panels to hang from the hand rail at the front of the surgery.
A friend made the gorgeous pink potted flower, if fact she made 5 of them and another friend knitted little butterflies and bees to decorate them. They were dotted around the garden and I have to say they looked amazing.
The Happy Flowers from the pattern on Attic 24 worked their colourful charm in flower troughs with the leafy trellis on the walls at either side with bees and ladybirds nestling in the leaves.
