Birds star flocks to gar­den party

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

BIRDS of a Feather star Pauline Quirke joined guests at a hos­pice’s gar­den party. The ac­tress was among the guests at a fun-filled gar­den party on Sun­day, July 12 at South Bucks Hos­pice. The char­ity laid on en­ter­tain­ment and food for dozens of peo­ple in­clud­ing dig­ni­taries from Amer­sham and High Wy­combe. Broad­church star Pauline, who lives in the area, took up an in­vi­ta­tion to join the gath­er­ing which also in­cluded Chair­man of Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil Coun­cil­lor Mimi Harker, Chair­man of South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil Coun­cil­lor Dun­can Smith, Mayor of High Wy­combe Coun­cil­lor Mo­hammed Hanif and Chair­man of Wy­combe Dis­trict Coun­cil Coun­cil­lor Ian McEn­nis. Pauline said: “It was such a plea­sure to be part of this great event in sup­port of a fan­tas­tic lo­cal cause. The gar­dens looked stun­ning and it was bril­liant to come back to visit the hos­pice years af­ter I first came to visit and see how much it has pro­gressed. I was amazed to hear the plans for the new premises South Bucks Hos­pice are go­ing to be build­ing and hope our com­mu­nity come to­gether to sup­port this very worth­while pro­ject.” To fit with Wim­ble­don, straw­ber­ries and cream were served, along with Cava, tea and home­made cakes. There were three groups of per­form­ers – in­clud­ing the Bisham Con­cert Band, Cos­mo­sis and Kuryan Pereira. Hos­pice chief ex­ec­u­tive Jo Woolf said: “Ev­ery­one had a great time and re­ally seemed to en­joy them­selves. It was our chance to get across the mes­sage of what the Hos­pice brings to the com­mu­nity but we also wanted our guests to have fun.” The hos­pice, cur­rently in High Wy­combe, is shortly to start build­ing work on a new £4.7m cen­tre in Tot­teridge to serve the whole of South Buck­ing­hamshire.
