Glenda Rodgers at Hillsborough Garden Party

Glenda and Nora

Glenda Rodgers was invited by Joan Christie, Lord Lieutenant of Co Antrim, to attend the recent Garden Party at Hillsborough Castle. She was accompanied by her sister, Nora.

Joan introduced Glenda to Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and told her about Glenda's WW II research and her book, "The Fallen of the Causeway Coast". They then had a five minute chat about the work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

The weather was dismal but this enjoyable occasion will remain long in the memories of these two guests from Bushmills.
