This Week in the Parish

St. John’s Afternoon Tea

Big thank you to all who set up, made cakes and helped at the afternoon tea yesterday, I’ve been told to give a special thanks to Glen for his washing up skills and Andrew for his drying up.

We managed to raise £162.50 for the new toilet and kitchen.

It was a great afternoon with lovely cake and atmosphere. With the faculty through for the new facilities, it was easy to see, when they are complete, how this would be great as a regular event and a lot easier to facilitate.
