MOTORISTS could hardly believe their eyes on Tuesday afternoon when a touch of sophistication came to the Broadway Gardens in Letchworth GC.

Men and women drank champagne and tucked into a banquet served from silver domes - all while they were sitting in the town

centre gardens.

They have produced a special My Supper for MS host pack giving ideas, invitations and recipes from top celebrity chef Steven Saunders.

Suggestions range from a small buffet to a pizza and ice cream party, a film night with popcorn or a wine tasting.

"Choosing an unusual venue could be fun too," said Chris Jones, the Trust's chief executive. "That's why we thought of the Broadway Gardens and fortunately North Hertfordshire District Council has been really helpful in allowing us to use them.

"Join in the fun in September and please arrange an event, however small, for us either on the launch night or during September for the My Supper for MS month. It doesn't need to be grand and involve a lot of work but it can certainly be fun."
