Strawberry Teas and Jazz on the Fen
Linda and Colin Evans hosted the inaugural Church Strawberry Tea at Commissioner's Farm on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon in July. Their hospitality and hard work certainly paid off with over 80 people coming to enjoy their lovely garden and the company of not just other "Fen folk" and villagers, but visitors from as far afield as Scotland and even Australia!! The workers were kept busy as a constant stream of people arrived, all having managed to find their way down on the Fen, and the scones just held out. Wine for the adults and lollies for the littlies were also on offer and then all that was to be done was to sit back and relax to the wonderful soothing music of Combertones Jazz. Our very grateful thanks go to David Almond and Spearhead Marketing Group at Lord's Ground for so generously sponsoring the entertainment for the afternoon.
Two hours went far too quickly and I think the verdict from everyone that was there was that it was definitely an event worth repeating next year!
With a profit of £290.00 for St Mary's as well, it seems that everyone's a winner.
