How you can get involved with the Phoenix Garden

Pendrell Party

Yesterday, the garden hosted the Pendrell House 20th Anniversary Party, a bunting, balloons and BBQ affair.  The youngest party-goers were entertained by Punch & Judy while thirsty elders did their best to drink 'Mark's Bar' dry.  Spicy burgers were served, followed by big chocolatey slices of celebration cake.  What fun!

We have finally received the new garden lease documents and trustees, in turn and as shown here, have signed them in the garden office.  They are now on their way back to Camden council for the P1060782P1060784Mayoral signature and stamp.  Following this, the new 20 year Phoenix Garden lease will be in place. Hooray!

P1060788You may be thinking, that after the many years invested in getting to this moment, we could have planned for a rather more picturesque setting for the occasion.  Not to worry though, no doubt we'll all be getting very picturesque at the celebration party - as our gardener says, planning ahead, "I'm going to get very, very drunk!"
