British community throwing summer family garden party on Sunday

14:12 20/06/2018

The Pimm’s and G&Ts will be flowing when Belgium’s British community gather at the Royal Brussels Cricket Club on Sunday.

For its first-ever midsummer garden party, the Brussels British Community Association (BBCA) is inviting expats and locals alike to join them in celebrating the summer solstice.

“This is about friendship, family and fun, and everyone is welcome. The more the merrier,” says BBCA chair Glenn Vaughan.

As well as cool cocktails, the British theme extends to refreshments, including high tea and cupcakes. A tombola (with prizes donated by Stonemanor), a book stand and classic sports and games for all the family, are additional attractions.

The event is raising money for some good causes. Says Vaughan: “The proceeds will go to the charities we support year after year. A couple of those support the expat community generally (CHS and the Wednesday Club) and the others are more British focused (Royal British Legion and the British Charitable Fund).”

After two years of the BBCA assisting the British community access information on Brexit, Vaughan adds: “Life’s too serious. This’ll be a summer Sunday afternoon with a G&T bar and Pimm’s at very democratic prices, and an occasional shout from the cricket. What’s not to like?”
