One gentleman asked if there were any ticket touts about! ( I don't think he was serious) I said ( in my best stern ex teacher's voice) "I'm sorry sir, but I don't think the WI does touting!" The Kendal brass band decided they would rather play in the village hall than in Broadgate Meadow, so the lunch was followed by a rousing Songs of Praise with everyone from the lunch being joined by large numbers of extra visitors who joined in with gusto.
I didn't take any photos, but there were lots of other people with cameras so I hope I'll be able to get some of theirs to post on the Grasmere WI website.
Here's another couple of photos that I've taken this morning in White Moss House garden. We have rooms from tomorrow for the rest of the week. If you'd like to visit, please email me , firstname.lastname@example.org, for our best rates.

|This azalea is an amazing colour- a mass of blooms right now.|
BUT WAIT! We've got the Olympic Torch coming on 21 June- another special celebration!
I'll be posting a special two day break offer on the White Moss House website later today for the Olympic Torch Relay day. See you then?
