PICNIC IN THE PARK – SUNDAY 29 JUNE 2014

8 Aug 14

The Swing Band did its magnificent best to blow the clouds away – and succeeded for an hour and more as Woodbridgians, past, current and future, stiffened their upper lips and spread their tablecloths to have a picnic come what may! And it was a gloriously social and uplifting time. But come the rain did, and so we cheerfully relocated into a very cosy and beautifully dressed Dome still wearing its Ball gown from the night before. Once all were comfortable Chairman of Governors, Mr Finbow, expertly set the scene on Mr and Mrs Cole’s twenty-one years; George Cook brilliantly picked up the pace with his flute; playing the Great Train Race to much foot-tapping, awestruck watching, and great applause; I did my best to keep our emotions in check and Mr Cole did even better… right down to his magnificent last line. The standing ovation for Mr and Mrs Cole was long, heartfelt, and loud as could be; and was underscored by the breaking news to close, from Mr Finbow, of The Stephen Cole Bursary Fund.
