A steel drum band from King Edward’s School and a lady and gentleman in period costume were there to welcome guests onto the Royal Crescent lawn last night where the Bath Preservation Trust had organised a drinks reception to say ‘thank you’ to all its supporters.

With No 1 back in business and re-united – at great expense – with its service wing  it was a time to acknowledge all tbose who had given generous amounts of money and time to make it happen.

Both the Chairman, Edward Bayntun-Coward, and Chief Executive , Caroline Kay, gave informal speeches of thanks.

Afterwards everyone – including the Mayor of Bath and Chairman of B&NES – was invited to take a tour of the newly-renovated and much-enlarged Georgian museum and even entertained to song and harpsicord music.

The grand marquee on the lawn was a bonus – kindly lent to the Trust by the Royal Crescent residents who are holding their annual ball in it tonight (Saturday).
