Charles Medhurst, below, officially opened the Drinking Fountain last week just in time for the summer weather. It has been very well used since, both by us and our four legged friends. It’s going to save a lot of plastic cups being blown around the park and hopefully keep us all quenched. You can fill up your bottles on the far side where the dog bowl is.
Charles, who many of you will know well, had just returned from the 75 Voyage of Remembrance, on board The Boudicca. He was wearing the medals presented to him by the British and French Governments and gave us some very moving words before cutting the blue ribbon. A welcome glass of fizz or orange was on hand to toast both Charles and the fountain.
