The 24th June marks the start of Wimbledon fortnight and to celebrate this important sporting and social event this week’s Tube-Flash station is Wimbledon on the District Line. I know, I know … Southfields is the closest station if you are going to the All England Club. Jennifer Ray, author of The Dedicated Follower, confesses to being a bit of a tennis fan and can often be found watching or discussing tennis.
This photo was taken by Jennifer when Roger Federer won Wimbledon.
The brooch paired with Wimbledon is this juicy strawberry
I bought it originally to be worn at a Cancer Research fund raising event. My friend Louise, who is a jolly good baker, keeps chickens and swears their eggs are her secret ingredient. She organised a Strawberries & Cream Tea Party where I was a waitress dressed all in pink and red sporting ‘the’ strawberry brooch and a pink ostrich feather in my hair. We sold homemade cream cakes and tea. And raised lots of money for Cancer Research.
