Blooming Great Tea Party

Marie Curie Cancer Care raises funds all over the country with its Blooming Great Tea Parties so we all gathered last Sunday at Ravenstone Court, beautiful old almshouses now turned into sheltered accommodation for ladies, for a very British tea party in the garden. As you can see from the small poster above, it rained heavily on Saturday, but Sunday dawned bright and warm.

The Marie Curie Cancer Care stall with Marea in position, ready for the rush.

All is ready

A Quiet moment before people arrive (Hymnbooks waiting for the final Evensong)

The Brownies are almost ready

Time for a quick burger before it begins

People start to arrive

The sophistications of 'Hook a Duck'

Horses (for stroking, not riding)

The all-important cup of tea

And, of course, cakes!

The Tombola - most popular stall of the day

Happiness is...

Lots of people and goodies

Lots of fun!


A glimpse of the almshouses

An ideal location

Dance-Network youngsters

Blues Brothers

Miss Personality

...and an appreciative audience



and his work

'Rivers and Shivers'

Final Evensong

All is quiet again
