The Mad Hatter's Tea Party, Part 1

by Gethin Thomas September. 14, 2021 345 views

Part one is the preparations for the party. So this post is dedicated to all of those people who put in so much work to make this event happen. It's always amazing when so many individuals complete so many smaller tasks which when they all come together, make such a big difference.

This event had so many parts which all miraculously came together on the final day. It started a year ago when the Frogmore phone box was taken from the village to be restored. Earlier in the year volunteers prepared the new site and a concrete base was installed. The phone box returned fully restored. Later a memorial bench was commissioned to be sited next to the phone box, and the plans were hatched for The Mad Hatter's Tea Party, which was to include the formal opening of the new Book Exchange and the unveiling of the memorial bench.

Part 2, "Let's get the party started" will follow soon.
