South Newington Garden Openings – May 27th & 28th

Thank you to all those who have already offered to help at the above event, but if anyone felt like baking a cake or two or sparing some time to help with the teas in the village hall on either day, that would be enormously helpful.

As some of you know, 7 gardens are opening on behalf of Katharine House Hospice on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May.  It is the first garden opening of the year for Katharine House and often this is a well attended event.  Opening times for the gardens are between 2 -5pm and many visitors look forward to a refreshing cup of tea and slice of cake at the end of their garden tour – I think all seven gardens will take at least 90 minutes to go around.

From experience, the teas can raise a significant amount and are a key part of the experience that visitors look forward to.

I am looking for volunteers to make cakes and for both days to serve teas in the Village Hall.

Please could you let me know if:

  1. You could bake a cake;
  2. Help with the teas and if so what dates or times would suit you.

Hopefully I will then be able to put together a rota, which will be agreeable to all.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
