We had a great time on Thursday at Tea with the Girls. This was planned and organised by Andrea, so she has to take all the credit, she did a great job!
We decorated the hall with pretty bunting, vintage embroidered tablecloths and napkins, flowers, it looked lovely. We had a huge selection of homemade cakes provided by our wonderful members and we served tea and cakes in china cups and saucers, teapots and milk jugs, all very vintage!
The village hall was pretty full with friends and family, ladies from nearby (or not so nearby!) WI’s, as well as ladies from the surrounding area. We also had two very special guests, Angela and Chris, two of the original Calendar Girls, who came to support Tea with the Girls which was raising money for Bloodwise. It was wonderful to sit and chat with them…
…and of course there were plenty of photo opportunities.
For a bit of fun we had also hired a handmade appliqued photobooth from Old Town Belles WI in Swindon, ‘We’re going to need considerably bigger buns’ caused much hilarity and of course we had to get a photo with Angela and Chris!
There was a wonderful atmosphere in the village hall, everyone laughing and chatting, enjoying each others company…and even better, in amongst all that enjoyment £630 was raised for Bloodwise.
Well done girls 🙂
