In case you don’t know firsthand, the Summer Spree was a huge success, the quintessential Summer Afternoon in the Park. And the Astronaut Training was a delightful addition.
Special thanks to the Management Committee: Ron Senkus, Sonja O’Sullivan, Iris White, Sandra Bauer, Paul Buckley, Alan Deacon and Andy King. They pulled out all the stops and made the event happen in style.
All of us would like to thank the members of FSP (and their tireless friends and families) who delivered leaflets, baked, took photos for the competition, suggested ideas, put up gazebos, dragged chairs and tables and boxes around, ran errands, ran stalls, served endless thirsty people and spread their cheerfulness in what was a truly neighbourhood event.
FSP owe a big thank you to Shrewsbury House for their help and participation, more this year than ever before. What a team! And Men with a Van! Thanks to the Allotmenteers of Dothill for taking people around their plots, too. There have always been allotments in Shrewsbury Park.
