Tea and Piece – result of yesterday’s event

We had a lovely afternoon in church on Sunday 25th July. This was the first time that we had been allowed to hold our regular fundraising and social event since the start of the pandemic.

We had a good attendance – plenty of lovely cake – and we raised just over £100 for the church.
