On Sunday, July 15th, Mark and Jenny Thorp, Clavelshay hosted an afternoon of cream teas in their beautiful garden with about 140 attendees. The weather was kind, the scones and cakes were scrumptious and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. The raffle prizes were amazing – baskets filled with summer fruits, wine, cheese and biscuits.
The Hall Committee would like to thank Mark and Jenny for hosting the event and everyone else who ‘pitched in’ by baking; putting up and dismantling the gazebos; bringing and returning chairs, tables and crockery from the village hall; serving; and clearing up.
Our guests were very generous as the overall ‘takings’ were the highest ever recorded for a single event organised for Thurloxton Village Hall (in excess of £1,300). This is a welcome and much-needed addition to our Thurloxton Village Hall Redevelopment Project fund.
