Rt Hon David Evennett MP was among the guests at a Bexleyheath and Crayford Conservatives Garden Party held on Saturday (11 June) at the Erith home of Association Officer Therese Oliver to celebrate the Queens 90th Birthday.
Despite the rain showers, all enjoyed a full cream tea of sandwiches, scones, and cakes with tea, coffee and soft drinks in the garden under a marquee. A champagne toast was also proposed to Her Majesty and all sang along to the National Anthem, Land of Hope and Glory, and Jerusalem.

Other guests attending the event included Mark Brooks, the Association’s Assistant to the Deputy Chairman (Political), Cllr Brian Bishop, and Ray Sams, candidate for the St. Michael's Ward by-election.
