On the first day of July, the local church at Ottery St Mary offered “Music at the Manor”. The arranged a smorgasboard of opera singing, jazz, choir singing and more traditional instrument music at different venues around our Manor. It took place in the early evening and in between everyone enjoyed the picnics that they had brought with them. And in traditional English style, the guests brought blankets and picnic tables and set it all up in our wildflower meadow above the Manor.
The weather Gods gave us their blessing and the sun was shining all through the evening until the last sun rays disappeared behind the hills behind Exeter.
