All Saints Church, Garden Fete
Description:
5th July 1941. Image taken on the afternoon of a Garden Fete held at All Saints Church in Richmond Hill. At 3.00 pm 'Sir Willie Boreham' was to assist in unveiling a statue dedicated to the 'Youth's Work in the Parish' followed by a short cricket match between 'Wardens and Firewatchers' and the 'Luftwaffe and other unmentionables'. There was also Clock Golf, Bowl Darts, races and competitions and refreshments served, including cups of tea and ice creams. Admission was charged at 4d for adults and 2d for children and the money raised was to go to the upkeep and maintenance of the Parish. In the image a small stage has been erected and some people are wearing fancy dress. The 'lady' in the plumed hat holding flowers, seated behind the boy in shorts, is actually teenager, Harry Crane who lived in Ascot Terrace. He was born in 1925 and became the lead choirboy of All Saints Church. The Vicar, seated, is possibly Reverend Harry Elliott, who wrote an article on the Garden Fete in the Parish magazine. The other vicar of All Saints Church at this time was the Reverend Philip Simpson.
