Grand day out with the Queen for Honiton Memory Cafe
Honiton Memory Cafe founders, Heather Penwarden and Min Rennolds, join Her Majesty the Queen, by special invitation, at a garden party at Buckingham Palace.
It was a royal occasion for the founders of Honiton Memory Cafe when they enjoyed a grand day out at Buckingham Palace.
Heather Penwarden, the cafe project’s chairman, and Min Rennolds, volunteer co-ordinator, joined Her Majesty the Queen, by special invitation, at a garden party.
They were able to mingle with diplomats and even caught a glimpse of the Queen in her peach dress and other members of the royal family.
Heather and Min also enjoyed listening to the military bands as they wandered round the gardens and to combat the hot weather they sat by the lake drinking ice-cold lemon barley water and eating ice cream.
