On Thursday we had the pleasure of attending ‘The Not Forgotten’ Garden Party at Buckingham Palace💜 A party set up by the charity to honour service men and women; this year we were able to honour our lovely Jack & Richard who between them served in the: RAF, Army & The Marines. We had a wonderful day sharing stories with others, exploring the beautiful gardens & seeing Princess Anne along with many more celebs! All with plenty of food & drink☕️🍰🍦
Sadly we couldn’t take all the wonderful residents at Amherst who served for us but hoping we are invited again next year to honour some more🥰
