The Great Afternoon Tea

This year, all baked and preserved goods that are entered into the Bake off at the Village Fair, Saturday 29th September, during the Art of Living Festival (AofL) will be donated to our festival fundraiser. Potters plus volunteers from the village have been busy making plates for this event. T2 is providing all the teas, chais, and ice teas, and volunteers on the day will help you select a yummy entry from the cake, scones, cupcakes, preserves for you to try.

In the event of rain it will be held in the community Hall.

Great Afternoon Tea

First, select a plate, (that you can take home), then something fabulous to eat, and chose from a selection of amazing teas from T2. Have a seat and enjoy a cuppa while you catch up with friends and family. The cost is only $15 and all the proceeds will go to continuing our village’s unique Art of Living Festival. Did you know that this festival has been running for 22 years, and we want to keep it going!

Please help us make this a wonderful event by volunteering, or making something fabulous for the competition, and of course coming round for your plate, baked goods and tea.

We will be holding this event outside of the Community Centre kitchen on Saturday, 29th September from 2pm - 4pm or until we run out of goodies and tea!
