Tea Anyone?

Thursday, July 18th 2019

It was that time again when Foxglove Covert volunteers take over the Town Hall in Richmond for the Coffee Morning. After an early start, with everything in place, the team were ready for customers.

Homemade carrot cake, rocky road, custard creams, lemon cake, cupcakes and marmalade cake were some of the delights on offer.

Honey, books, bird seed and greeting cards were also available.

As well as the usual tombola and raffle.

A good, steady flow of visitors ensured that the kitchen team were kept busy and out of mischief!

Everything was served with a warm, friendly smile!


Many thanks to all who helped out with this event from baking and preparing to washing and drying up. A special shout for Elizabeth who has been working on this behind the scenes for some time and who is still tidying up!
