Strawberry Tea

Once more we have to thank Jacqui and Peter Millard for opening their home and garden. Not only did they hold the Christian Aid coffee morning at their home but once more they are allowing us to use it for the Strawberry Tea on Sunday June 30th. Tickets will be on sale shortly at £5, but if you would like to come and haven't bought a ticket you will be welcome to pay at the door. Do come and along and enjoy views across the canalfrom Jacqui and Peter's home, and indulge in some scones with homemade strawberry jam and lashings of cream.

Baking for Builders
