Last Saturday, it maybe didn’t feel like summer on the outside, but inside the village hall it was summer all the way with the annual Strawberry Tea extravaganza. From strawberry sandwiches (yes, really), to strawberry fairy cakes and strawberry meringues, through to strawberry torte and strawberries and cream, it was all there for the eating.
Doug and Hilary provided some first class live music – all the more impressive as they were literally on their way home from Skye and probably felt more like putting their feet up with a nice cup of tea and a large slice of strawberry cake! Many thanks to all those who who helped with the preparation, the baking, the setting up, and finally the clearing up. More pics below:
This year, the village hall has the Thrift Shop from 9th – 15th August. This is the Hall’s main fundraiser for the year, and all items and offers of help will be gratefully received. If you have any good quality clothing or bric-a-brac to donate, then please take it to the Thrift Shop during this week. If you have items to uplift or suitable prizes for the tombola, please contact Karen on 830548.
And if you can contribute to the Home Baking and Produce Stall on Friday 14th, please contact Elaine on 830682. Elaine would also be pleased to hear from you if you can volunteer for a few hours during the week.
The next Book Club meeting will be on Tuesday 18th August and the book of the month is Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mocking Bird”.
And finally, as an alternative to a Coffee Morning, the FVA will be serving Soup and a Roll on Saturday 19th September in the village hall at 11.30am.
