Premiere at ‘The Bush’ Cinema and Picnic in the Park/Shopping in Bury

A fine afternoon of cricket was enjoyed by all before the boarders changed into their red, white and blue and headed to the croquet lawn for a quintessential Victorian Tea Party. The Royals were too busy to make it on this occasion but nonetheless the boarders devoured the cakes and buns and other sticky treats before the Royal Cake was cut and handed out to the hungry hoards. When all was consumed we all alighted to the ‘Bush Cinema’ for the outdoor premiere. When bundled onto crashmats and snug under the covers, the boarders relaxed and were treated to popcorn and sweeties under the stars. A beautiful evening came to an end before the boarders arose on Sunday morning to a Full English and then church at Thorpe Morieux.

A beautiful reading and an energetic service made us ready for the pool and before long all were enjoying the water in the warm sunshine. During the afternoon the convoy of buses set off for Bury and a picnic in the Abbey Gardens followed by some interesting shopping excursions around the Ark and the Market Square. We then arrived back in time for the Sunday roast and ice cream and jelly for desert. A quiet and peaceful evening before the start of the final week before half term was welcomed by all and many thanks must go to Mr Bunting and Dr (Doc) Marshall for their support and efforts on Sunday as well as Mr Auld and Mrs Warren for their help on Saturday night.
