FERNHURST Good Companions were delighted when Peter and Isabel Bristowe invited the group of pensioners along to have tea in their garden for their Fernhurst August meeting.
Although it was not one of the hottest days of the summer, the rain stayed off and the hosts put out a mass of chairs and a marquee awning for their visitors.
The members loved the garden with its wonderful view and sense of tranquillity surrounded by fields where sheep and ponies grazed.
The vegetable garden and greenhouses were particularly admired with a host of magnificent vegetables including kale, cucumbers, leeks, beetroot, aubergines, okra, tomatoes of all sizes, squash and marrows and many different fruit.
The Bristowes invited the visitors to help themselves and many went home with a selection.
The idea had been initiated because their gardener is the son of one of the Good Companions, but sadly his mother died before the visit.
