Cream teas in aid of church
PEOPLE helped raise cash for a church by tucking into a cream tea at the weekend.
The annual Cholesbury Cream Teas event, held at Cholesbury Village Hall on Sunday, has been deemed a ‘huge success’.
The range of cakes, scones and meringues proved popular, from lemon and poppy seed cupcakes, to carrot and pineapple, date and walnut, chocolate, and orange cakes.
Thanks to generous donations of plants, books and bric-a-brac there was a wide range to choose from on the stalls, and the plant stall sold almost every plant.
The new Buckingham Palace ‘Treasure Map’ was ‘very popular.’
The prize was a silver coin to commemorate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
One of the organisers Liz Green said: “We are most grateful to everyone who supported us by donating goods, helping on the day, baking cakes or coming to enjoy the teas. We are delighted to have raised a record sum of £1,208 for Cholesbury Church.”
