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.”
