Strawberries and Cream and an Umbrella…

Having spent the previous week excitedly anticipating the day in hot and stuffy Christy HQ we were ready to enjoy the sun at Wimbledon.

10:30 Southfields Station dressed for Pimms and Strawberries and Cream the rain begins and the umbrellas are out…

…13:00 – does anyone have a small boat…

We are joined by Lobster and Swan, Poppy Loves, Torie Jayne and Gemsmaquillage all looking beautifully summery and with high excited sprits that will not be quashed by the torrential rain we currently experiencing.

The atmosphere on Centre Court is electric with anticipation and heightened by the fact that as part of a long standing tradition Wimbledon has invited famous names from the world of sport to enjoy the middle Saturday including David Beckham which is causing much excitement!

There are some great names on Centre Court Rafa Nadal, Maria Sharapova and Roger Federer and we were in for an exciting day of tennis and more than a measure of pride at seeing our fabulous (if we do say so ourselves) Christy Wimbledon Championships Towels being used exclusively on court throughout the tournament as they have been for the last 26 years.
