Mid-summer evening dinner & AGM

The Friends of Juniper Hall members gathered for dinner overlooking the front lawn which was full of excited student activity in the summer evening sunshine – so good to see Juniper Hall delivering its core function of getting people out enjoying the natural environment.

Before the wine and wonderful food was our AGM where our Chair, Mavis, reported 2022 as a good year – the first full year of Friends activity since Covid. Treasurer, Bryony, reported a good financial year and Centre Manager, Maddy, made us all smile describing the value of the projects we were able to fund last year at Juniper Hall: 25,000 students have already used the new teaching pond, and in this month alone, 500 students have used the dining room benches. We were also celebrating the 35 years that David Streeter has been at the helm of the Friends as President, presenting him with a ‘Thank You’ rose and some wine as he retires.
