Summer Garden Party

Every few months we hold a little party for our guardians, local residents and our various partners and it always manages to put a smile on my face. Last week we held our Summer Garden Party at a housing estate in Poplar where we have been working for the past few years. It was chance for all of our guardians, living in various parts of London, to come together to meet each other and swap volunteer stories and generally have a nice evening in sun. A particular highlight for me was that previous Dot Dot Dot guardians also came along and said that they still felt a strong connection to Dot Dot Dot and the other guardians – amazing!

It was also great to have various local residents come along including members from the resident’s association board – this gave the new guardians a chance to introduce themselves and generally break the initial ice of moving in somewhere new.

Of course a highlight for many was the wonderful food provided by FoodCycle, an amazing organisation creating delicious dishes out of food waste. We enjoyed a selection of various cakes and savoury snacks including Dot Dot Dot Lizzie’s favourite, the vegetarian sausage rolls – which were very quickly devoured by all.

Bring on the next party!
