4th February 2018  - Afternoon Tea in the Church Hall

St. Luke’s Social Committee decided to do an afternoon tea in the Church hall this February, as it is a quiet time of year in the Church calendar.

We sold 35 tickets, and provided lots of different sandwiches, various home-made cakes made by our generous volunteers, as well as scones, cream and jam. These were all presented on 3-tier cake stands and served on vintage plates, with vintage china cups and saucers, all provided by Claire Butler (The Little Vintage Tea).

It was a very enjoyable afternoon and hopefully, if we do it again, people will pass on the message and make it even more successful.

Thank you to all those people who came and especially to Barbara, Alison, Judy, Claire, Mike and Dorothy for all your hard work on the day.
