2021 September High Tea
Wow what a fantastic day it was on Friday 3rd September at our High Tea party. Sixty ladies enjoyed delicious sandwiches, slices, scones & savouries, so much food AND endless supply of Champagne, Wine, Soft Drink or Juice. The ambience of the room complemented the wonderfully decorated tables. The ladies had a chance to win a raffle from the 15 prizes available. Kelli, a member, from One Bird Jewellery & Accessories entertained the ladies with a jewellery making demonstration. A big thank to the ladies organising the High Tea, who are members but not our Committee ladies. Well done Girls!
