We have a rather exciting and entertaining (with a few surprises in store) Autumn event coming up:-
A Scandinavian Christmas Celebrations illustrated talk, in costume, by Veronica Poultney will be held at 7.30 pm on Friday 6th December 2013 in St Peter’s Church, Broad Street, Ely. The talk will be followed by a tasting of “Julbord” … a special Swedish type of smörgåsbord, which is the standard Christmas dinner in Sweden.
Tickets for this event are £10 and can be purchased from Burrows Bookshop, Ely.
Jubilee Gardens Ely has been awarded the coveted Green Flag Award for the 9th successive year – the only garden in this area to be recognised with this Award!!
Well done and a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to our achievement.
We were proud to reveal the new flag to an enthusiastic crowd during the launch of the much needed resurfacing of the children’s play area, which was made possible thanks to the great generosity of the Friends of Jubilee Gardens Ely and part funding from East Cambridgeshire District Council. ** A big pat on the back to us all **
Well we had a busy summer with several events, including a fabulous Cream Tea held in Wendy and Michael Powell’s garden. The Ely weather presented us with one of the hottest days of the year and we were most grateful to the Girl Guides who served us with tea and refreshments whilst we relaxed under the shade. The event was an outstanding success and we raised £190 towards our funds.
Another very successful FOJG outing – Lord Walpole himself conducted the tour of Wolterton Hall and imparted so much information with delightful humorous anecdotes.
