CAKES!, CAKES!, CAKES!
Due to the success of ‘Teas’ in the village hall & garden last year The Teas Team have agreed to repeat the exercise! So, once again they are desperate for cakes. It is important to let Pam (271) or Tricia (255) know if you are able to donate a cake (last year you were all amazing!) so that they have some idea of how many they will receive. All cakes can be dropped off (not literally!) in the hall after 10.30 on the day or given to Pam or Tricia by prior arrangement.
CALL MY BLUFF
Not many tables unreserved for Friday 28 July at 7pm in the North Town Field. Places are £15 or £100 for a table of 8. Pay on the night but book through Bob (271) or Emily at the Shepherd & Dog.
