Picnic at Swiss Cottage - 2019
On a balmy summer evening, forty three members and guests gathered with their picnics in the tranquil surroundings of the orchard at Swiss Cottage.
Unfortunately, Theresa, the harpist who was going to play for us, sustained a nasty gash to her leg whilst setting up her equipment which resulted in her being rushed off to A and E. We are most grateful to Leah and Douglas from English Heritage for administering first aid and for organising Theresa’s transportation to hospital. They also provided us with the substitute background classical music which added to the ambiance of a most enjoyable evening. A raffle was held during the evening and a total of £416 was raised for the Friends of Osborne Charity
Theresa, who was most disappointed to be unable to perform at the picnic, has offered to play for us later in the year. The date for this has now been set for Friday October 11th and Allison has been in touch with everyone who attended the picnic inviting them to a free recital which will be held in the Friends rooms.
