2nd of July 2008

Jenny Laurie was pleased to be part of the team from her flower club Design Scents which won a Bronze medal at the Chelsea Flower Show for their exhibit depicting ‘My Fair Lady’ in the ‘Overture’ class in the Floral Design marquee.  This was an interesting if exhausting way to visit Chelsea, as the exhibits are put up overnight and you leave the showground at dawn as the press begin to arrive.

Verna Meader would like to thank everyone who gave her and her husband Len so much kindness and support during and after his unsuccessful fight against cancer.

Some residents may not know that Sarah Stanley of Stanley’s store is also a photographer and a documentary producer/director (in her spare time!) and recently produced and directed a film for Sky entitled The Man Who Had Minutes To Live. The film follows the emotional journal of the plight of Pete and Julia Nash from Kings Langley. It is an incredible film that thankfully has a very happy ending. Please watch it if you are fortunate to have Sky. It is broadcast three times a month on Sky One and Two.
Sarah’s photography is unique. Her company PIGAPICHA (kiswahili for “take a photo”) is the only Fair Trade photography company where a percentage of any sale goes back to the remote community where the image was taken – something which Sarah feels very strongly about.
Have a look at her website if you can:
Sarah will be holding her first exhibition Love & Live with Julia Nash, the subject of her documentary film and now a close friend. The exhibition runs at Watford Museum from July 24 until August 7 and also at Watford Town Hall from July 24 to September 5. Please pop along if you get a chance. There will be posters on display at Stanley’s Store with more information nearer the time.
