A great day was had by all at the ever popular Alfresco Lunch on Sunday 18th August, kindly hosted by Sir Geoffrey and Lady Pattie.

Wine was flowing and the meringues were plentiful as 141 guests came together to raise funds for Petworth Cottage Nursing Home. The lunch has become a firm favourite in the social calendar, helping to raise over £6,500 this year alone. This incredible amount will help fund a new accessible minibus for our residents. Make sure to wave at Don driving it around the village!

We thank Sir Geoffrey and Lady Pattie for their generosity in hosting, and Petworth Marquee Hire for protecting the guests from the elements.
