Garden party escapes hail to raise £600
MORE than 500 residents visited Princess Pavilion on Saturday for the Falmouth Bay Residents' Association garden party.
The event escaped the erratic bad weather of the previous day and stallholders, entertainers, volunteers and visitors were bathed in sunshine.
Event organiser Elaine Leather said: "It was such a good event, it was well attended and we were so lucky with the weather. I was thrilled."
Entertainment was provided by acoustic guitarist Matt Collinge and children's entertainer Tarquin.

Mrs Leather said there was a "huge" auction and raffle with "substantial prizes" which were donated by local restaurateurs and hotels, including a £140 meal for four and a £200 night stay at a bed and breakfast.
The £600 raised at the event will go towards the painting of the benches on Castle Drive and a local charity, which has yet to be decided.
