Open Garden Sunday 19th August 2018

Rosemary
held a very successful Open Garden event at her home in Hanham on
Sunday 19th August. She was a little nervous about holding
the event and wondered if anyone would turn up.

She
needn’t have worried as it was a lovely afternoon after a dismal
morning and her house and garden were full of people chatting and
enjoying the marvellous tea and cake, supplied by her band of willing
helpers, especially Alex and Peter.

Rosemary’s
garden is full of trees and shrubs with lots of hidden nooks and
seating areas. Her garden shed with its beach scene was a real
talking point!

Rosemary
managed to raise the magnificent sum of £400 for the Huntington’s
Disease Association.

This included a number of children, who were kept busy by Glenn
Dutton. The atmosphere was brilliant and yet another perfect Family
Day, organised and arranged by Carol Dutton, with the support of so
many people, who helped out. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone

The AGM at Somerdale Pavilion on 4 April

Debbie
Nicholl remained as Treasurer for Financial Year 18/19, with Fay and
Greg Marsh and Corrina Gillman, joining as Committee Members. Carol
Dutton gave a presentation on her area and outlined the plans for
Family Day in June. Mainly due to the money raised through the
people who took part in the Great Weston Ride, The Bristol Half and
the Bristol 10K, we were able to agree to send £4000 to Head Office,
split between Research and the Specialist Huntington’s Disease
Advisers. Brilliant! We had also spent £2500 on purchasing
domestic electrical items, beds & bedding, carpets, food
vouchers, National Trust Membership, Taxis and a Television.

Please
let your Specialist HDA Carol Dutton or Shirley Bignell know, if
there is anything we can help you with during this Financial Year and
we will do our best to help.
