Coffee morning 1

Tuesday 19th September saw the main hall of Tarvin Community Centre filled with supporters for this year''s Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee Morning. In a crowded hall, it was very lucky that we had early birds and later visitors who kept the tea ladies busy in shifts!

Over the course of the morning, by our estimate, well in excess of 100 people came to visit for coffee, cake and a chat — many saying that they had thoroughly enjoyed the get together and chance to catch up with friends that they haven't seen for a while.

The event was hosted by Christine Ankers (formerly of the Tea Rooms at the 50p shop at Hoofield... and the quality of the cakes and goodies on offer was definitely a testament to her baking abilities...Mary Berry eat your heart out...we have Tarvin's answer!

In addition to tea /coffee and cake we also held a wonderfully large raffle, a tombola, and a whiskey roll (the nearest £1 taking home the bottle of Bushmills!

At the end of a very very well supported event, a total of £715 had been raised in aid of Macmillan...as they say of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning, every slice of cake helps makes a huge difference to people facing cancer. Thank you so much to everyone who was able to support the event.

Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...
