I would love everyone coming to dress up for this event, and will have a few spot prizes for the best dressed lady on the day.
I never wear hats, but would love to see everyone wearing one, for fun, why not decorate a charity shop find, or wear one you bought for a wedding which you only wore once before. lovely prize for this as well.

All I need now is the weather to be kind to us,
if for some reason the weather forecast is bad, 
I will cancel this event the night before.
and reschedule for the following week depending on the weather. 
So please check Facebook and your emails the evening before..

Thanks everyone
