FINGERS CROSSED we will be holding our first Village Tea Party in over a year on:
WEDNESDAY 21st JULY – from 2.30 pm until 4.30 pm
In Ropley Parish Hall.
Please note that we have moved on a week from our original date in the hope that restrictions will be lifted.
This will be a special Tea Party for many reasons, the first being that it will be a wonderful treat to see you all again and another that we would like to remember all those people, whether they were Tea Party supporters of not, who have left us since March last year. All donations for the tea will be sent to a charity in their memory.
Please do come and join us, we have learnt even more than ever over the past year how important Community is and the Tea Parties are a wonderful way for everyone, from the very young to the not so young, to meet together, for old friends to meet up and for those who are new to the village to make new friends.
There will, as always, be delicious cakes and scones to enjoy along with a welcome cup of tea and soft drinks for the children. There is no charge, just a donation bowl which usually helps cover expenses but on this occasion any donations will be sent to a charity.
There will also be an opportunity to browse through the Village Archive Photograph Albums which are always much enjoyed and stimulate many memories and lots of chat!
It’s very easy to say do come along but sometimes taking that first step is quite difficult and for some people it is much easier if they come along and help so if you feel that is something you would like to do, please just let me know as helpers are always welcome.
If you need a lift do let us know and we can arrange for you to be collected and taken home.
We have really missed you and can’t wait to see you again, so do come and bring all your friends and neighbours.
From September we will be holding the Tea Parties on a monthly basis and if you would be willing to make the occasional cake or batch of scones please do get in touch, your help would be greatly appreciated.
We look forward to seeing you.
