Secret Garden Party 2011
With fabulous fizz, delectable canapés, gentle music from Bayleaf Brass and a hubbub of happy people, this year's Secret Garden Party was a great success. The only thing missing was the sun – but this is England, so we're used to its absence.
More than 100 guests included Brighton Kemp Town and Peacehaven MP Simon Kirby; council leader Bill Randall; the new chair of Brighton and Hove City Council's planning committee, Phelim McCafferty, and his deputy, Linda Hyde; chairs of other conservation and amenity societies including Kingscliffe's Roy Davis; and many members and their friends.
We are grateful to the Antony Dale Trust for kindly allowing us to continue the tradition started by Yvonne Dale and use this special garden.
