Goodly Dale Armed Forces Garden Party 2017
- Lake District National Park
Windermere LA23 2JX
We would like to celebrate our Armed Forces by organising a garden party for some the residents of Windermere, particularly those who live in and around Goodly Dale cottage homes. Goodly Dale has a communal grassy area where we could host a garden party. The Bowness and Windermere community care trust ( Phoenix centre Windemere) and Goodly Dale homes are local registered charities and will be working together on this event with support from the local Air Cadets and Windermere WI.
The event will be by way of a garden party, with bunting, food and music to bring people together in any way that we can, to celebrate our Armed Forces and create a feeling of pride and social inclusion for the residents and attendees. We have made some tentative enquiries with local musicians regarding their availability on the afternoon of the party and if we secure enough funding we could have to have a 1940s style singer , a local accordion player , a bag pipe player and maybe some of the band members fron the local Air cadets. We have approached the local WI ladies about their support to make some lovely cakes and scones for the attendees with tea and coffee. In the event of bad weather we would be looking at the use of the small communal room or if enough funding is secured we would look at the use of a marque style gazebo to make it more comfortable for the attendees.
