Garden Parties

Tuesday, June 29, 2010
The recent weather has been quite ideal for that great English institution, the garden party. Strawberries and cream are de rigueur and a refreshing drink lubricates the conversation. Here in Blackfriars, Oxford, we have had two garden parties. The first was to mark the end of the academic year. The Blackfriars Hall Garden Party is a good chance for students and tutors to unwind and catch up with friends before they scatter for the long vacation.

Blackfriars Priory also had a garden party on Sunday 27 June, one of a series of events to thank our benefactors who support us throughout the year and particularly with the recently-completed Priory Renewal project. It was a good occasion to meet people from our various Mass congregations. Families came on the hottest day of the summer (so far!) to chat with us and to enjoy the sunshine. Provision was even made for those who wanted to watch the unfortunate England-Germany World Cup match!
