Margaret Miskin, accompanied by husband John enjoyed their day at a recent Buckingham Palace garden party. The invitation was in recognition of Margaret's 30 years of service to the Aylesbury 1st Boys' Brigade. After walking through the ground floor to the back of the palace, they were able to enjoy the scene overlooking the garden, with a huge marquee for afternoon tea. "We enjoyed people watching", said Margaret, "and it was good to see Boys' Brigade and Girls' Brigade youngsters from around the country acting as stewards. We were lucky with the weather and we had a great day." Margaret, you deserved it!
