The June Coffee Morning was a well-attended, warm and friendly event, with some familiar faces, some new faces and some visitors who were staying in the village.
We had our first canine attendees: Frankie the golden retriever, Hamish the border terrier, and Caileag the black lab. They arrived with the walkers and seemed to enjoy themselves, despite the fact there were no plates of Bonio biscuits amongst all the other goodies on offer.
We’re now getting ready for our Strawberry Tea event on Sat 15th July at 3pm in the hall. And just to remind you, here’s a picture of last year’s spread…………
It’s afternoon tea with a difference and everyone is welcome (residents, visitors and passers-by) to join us for this feast of strawberry delicious-ness. We would be delighted if you would like to make or bake a contribution, but please let Sue know on 830493 (it helps with the planning).
Doug and Hilary will be providing the live music. It’s pay at the door as usual, £7 pp for as much as you can eat, school age children are half price and under 5’s get a free pass.
Work is continuing to clear the bracken around the site for the seat that Ian McGregor is gifting in memory of his wife, Ann. The view from the site is quite fantastic.
Many thanks to all who have lent muscle power to bash the bracken so far. We need to keep going with this, and further contributions will be very welcome (what better way to work off the small number of calories you might consume at the Strawberry Tea?).
