I attended the picnic yesterday and had a lovely time thank you. I was talking to JP and showed him some photos I had of when my sister’s and I were looking for fish in the pond when we were children! I am about two (60 years ago!) and my sister about 5.
The one with my Mother hanging on to me for dear life so that I didn’t end up in the pond was taken by the Worthing Herald and appeared in the local paper.
The third photo is of my Grandparents who married in 1933, this photo was taken before they were married, they obviously did some of their courting in the gardens! Hope they are of interest.
Thanks again for all the hard work you put in to make yesterday’s picnic in the park a great success.

Please find the pictures I promised to send you of my Nanny Betty Bonser taken around 1929 – 1930 in Denton Gardens, one of them with her mother May Bonser.
See you soon from Hayley and Elsie from volunteering.
