Garden Party

The Usual Suspects

The 26th May 2009 started dull and drizzly but cleared to a few occasional showers and bright sunshine just in time for the Annual Erskine Writer's Garden Party. The usual suspects turned up armed with enough food to feed the whole street.

Drinks and Nibbles

Before the proceedings could begin properly, Alex Grey read out her adjudication and placings for the Crime Story competition.

There were nine entries. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to Alex for her excellent adjudication.

After munching on many helpings from the laden table the party moved outside into garden were we enjoyed the warm sun and kept a wary eye on those rain clouds. Thanks to the hostess for organising this grand affair.

Hi Moira

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the photos and account of EW's Garden Party. Being a postal member and unable to attend the Tuesday meetings, visiting the blog makes me feel I am still part of the group and I really appreciate it.

I was interested in knowing why your group is called the Erskine Writers? I am a genealogy researcher and have done a family tree for the Erskine-Shaw family. I wondered if there were any connections.
