Buckingham Palace

Thursday, July 22nd 2010

Earlier in the year we were delighted to receive an invitation for 21 July to one of HM The Queen's garden parties at Buckingham Palace. As you can see, yesterday was a really sunny and hot day in the palace grounds. This group shot was taken in the rose garden.

Elizabeth at Buckingham PalaceThe trip was in recognition of the commitment and industry that is reflected on the reserve at Foxglove. Diane deals with a tremendous amount of administrative work behind the scenes and Elizabeth is more or less a full time voluntary member of staff and has just worked for six consecutive days (including a 4am start for CES on Sunday)! It was a fun experience enjoyed by us all and we are extremeley grateful to the members of the Management Group for enabling this visit and to Emma and Tom who 'held the fort' while we were away!

Here you can see Elizabeth on the lawn waiting for Tolly to bring the ball back.
