Summer Party 2017

Cambridge Drawing Society Summer Party 2017

 

Summer Party 2017 1

Some 90 CDS Members and Friends, together with family and friends came
together for the Society's annual Summer Garden Party on the 25th June. The party is a great opportunity for members and Friends of the Society to get to know each other, discuss their shared passion for art and exchange ideas. 

This year it was hosted by our President, Janice Anderson and her Husband Derek at their lovely house and garden in Cambridge. As with the previous year, the weather leading up to the event had been changeable, but on the day it was pleasently warm and enabled everyone to enjoy the garden at it's best. Summer Party 2017 4

The success of the party relies on help and support from many volunteers. Huge thanks go to Anne and Jeff Tossell , who had to overcome a mechanical failure of their hired trailer, to deliver their marquee on time. Thanks also go to Neil Warmsley, who joined with Janice, Derek, Ann and Jeff to erect the marquee on a blustery Friday before the party. Our gratitude to Janice's daughter Becky, who worked endlessly in the weeks leading up to the party to ensure the Garden was at it's best for the event. Thank you to Harry Baker and Derek for sharing their photographs of the day. Finally, we are all indebted to Janice and Derek for kindly making their home available for the party and also for providing the wonderful spread of food and drink, which was enjoyed by all.
