60th anniversary celebrations
Saturday, August 17, 2013
As part of our ongoing celebrations, Chilstone played host to a collection of friends and guests in our sunny Langton Green showgarden on Thursday August 8th. Thanks must go to our friends Manor Hire who provided a really lovely marquee for our lunch. The lunch guests sat down to a jolly seafood lunch and chilled wine beautifully prepared by local caterers The Olive Tree. Also special thanks to our own Jill Jarrett who organised everything with her usual skill whilst all around etc etc. The sun came out and the showgardens never looked better. In fact many thought we should open the gardens for weddings - see the pictures and decide for yourself. We held a display of making Chilstone for our guests who are always surprised to see that Chilstone really is made by hand and there are no machines involved!

If only all networking events were like this! The Pimm's, Prosecco and iced drinks flowed freely provided by Chilston's Jill, Sonia and Jenny, with beautifully made canapes prepared by The Olive Tree (highly recommended!) The evening was well attended and was a great success.

The event was a great success and it was a perfect summer evening treat.
