Papworth Everard Heritage Day – 5 April 2014

Papworth Everard W.I. were delighted to be asked to provide teas for the Papworth Everard Heritage Day on Saturday 5th April.  We met in the Studio at 12 noon to set up our counter and it wasn’t long before the tea table was covered in delicious cakes and biscuits and the aroma of freshly baked goodies pervaded the room.

After a talk by Penny Brittain, who is a regular BBC Antiques Roadshow expert, we served tea to the assembled audience  whilst some took the opportunity to ask Penny about their treasures that they had brought along.   Very soon visitors who’d been exploring the exhibits in the library joined the queue to be tempted by the goodies available.

Choir news

We have been so pleased that Penny  kindly volunteered to come along to accompany the choir on the keyboard.  This has made such a difference as it allows Jan the freedom to conduct the choir enabling us to find the confidence that Jan is looking for.  In recognition of Penny’s kindness, the choir decided to sponsor Penny for the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 7 April in aid of Alzheimer’s
