Charity Coffee Morning raises over £700

Following an established tradition, Templemere neighbours once more came together to raise funds for MacMillan Cancer Support.
Restrictions on social distancing meant that we congregated on the main lawn, but as we enjoyed a lovely sunny day, it was an enjoyable occasion for neighbours and friends to have a coffee and cake.
We were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Elmbridge (her first official visit since lockdown in March).
There was a wonderful raffle (prizes given by Templemere neighbours and Oatlands Village businesses) and, best of all, the grand total was £702.
Thanks to everyone who made this event both enjoyable and so very successful. 

Welcome to our gardens

Every year, the Open Gardens event is one of the highlights of our summer Family Day celebrations.  Residents open their back gates to their neighbours on a Saturday afternoon and welcome a neighbourly nose around their borders.  Templemere gardens may be all of a similar size but they boast an array of different gardening and landscaping styles – paved, decked or lawned, traditional or contemporary, formal or family friendly.

This year’s pandemic will mean a different kind of Family Day later in the summer, but we can still enjoy our friends’ and neighbours’ gardens from the safety of our own homes. Happy visiting!

Irish dancing on the lawn – May 17

Another wonderful performance from some of our very talented residents during social distancing.

Art Challenge @ No 61

One of the latest Physical Distance & Social Togetherness events is the Art Challenge, where everyone is invited to recreate a famous work of art at home using members of the family and any props you have to hand.  (You can also recreate the work in pens and paint.)

Here are the fantastic recreations from Nicole and Bastian Victor at Number 61.  Why not have a go yourselves; take a picture of the results and post it in your window.

 

 

Sunday Night on the Lawn – May 10

Live performances from some of our talented residents have become a very special feature of Templemere life under lock-down.  If you missed them, here are two from Sunday May 10, a poetry reading from Brenda (who came up with the original suggestion) and a violin recital from Angela, aged 7.
