Ebony’s Blog Life at The Shelley Centre Did I mention we’d been going 30 years here at Shelley? The Chairman and Trustees decided to have a party (am I surprised?) to celebrate this milestone, and tried to invite as many past supporters and workers as could be found. Two of our founder members, Mike and Jane Crowe, very kindly offered their garden for the venue at the end of term. The rain held off, the garden looked amazing, and the food and drink flowed. For once, I’m told, this was not a fundraiser! No raffle, no hassle, just a wonderful opportunity to come together and enjoy themselves for the price of a ticket. Kizzy and Sarah played beautiful music to enhance the atmosphere. As usual the relaxed ambience wasn’t achieved without a massive amount of work by a very few people, all of whom deserve a huge round of applause. The real ‘piece de la resistance’ was the system of ramps created especially for our wheel chair users to access the garden up two flights of steps. My photos show Margaret inspecting the work before guests arrived, and then supervising their ascent! I wasn’t installed when the Centre first opened, and the site was quite bare when it all began. Scrapbook photos show how the place has evolved and settled in to the lovely venue it is now. I do sometimes wish I could get outside and see more than just the yard, then I realise how lucky I am to do the job I do with the riders who come to me. The live herd joins me in wishing all our readers a happy and drama free holiday, and here’s to the next 30 years! www.shelleyrda.com Telephone: 01473 824172
