Hi readers, it’s William here today as Emily can’t make it this week. I hope you all had a nice bank holiday weekend. This week I would like to tell you about a Garden Party I’m going to at Buckingham Palace this month, which I am really excited about!
I was invited to go because I’d been nominated as a thank you for the volunteering I do, such as for People First Dorset where I help at events, sit on a management committee and speak about the charity at fundraising or other events; at Eucan where I help with outdoor work; in the Borough Gardens and because I do other things when I get the chance. I had no idea someone had put my name forward until I got this invitation two years ago!
Unfortunately the Garden Party in 2020 had to be cancelled because of Covid but it’s now been rescheduled for this May.
Luckily I can take someone with me so I have asked my friend Dick. He is going to drive us to his daughters house near London, where we will change, and then either drive or train to Buckingham Palace.
I think the Garden Party will be full of people dressed up in suits and dresses. At 4pm some of the royal family will come out into the garden. I feel very proud to be going and am excited to see the royals, perhaps even meet them if I am lucky. I am also really interested to see the garden there, and what kind of plants and flowers are in it.
As I am working the next day we will be back that night. I will let you know how it goes so please keep reading our columns to read more.
