The Parish Garden Party was held in the beautiful garden of Roberta and Stephen in Burton on the Wolds on Sunday 18th August. Despite a worrying weather forecast earlier in the week, the sun shone on us for most of the afternoon. The food was, as ever, plentiful and delicious. There was a raffle to support a most worthwhile charity: the oncology unit, led by Professor Paul Chan, at the QMC in Nottingham. This was the chosen charity of the St John family on the occasion of the recent funeral of Fr John's mother. His sister has received invaluable help from this unit. The raffle raised £100. We were all encouraged to fill and take away bags of apples and plums which were growing in abundance. Below are some photos of the occasion.
