An afternoon cream tea fundraising event was held on Friday the 12 July to raise funds for the St Minver Community Hub. As well as raising much needed funds, the occasion provided an opportunity to share information with the public about the plans for the Community Hub and the ongoing developments.
Jacky and David Hall kindly hosted the event and generously opened up their spectacular home, one of the oldest in Rock, to all. There was tea in the beautiful garden, tennis and swimming for the energetic. A delicious home-made afternoon cream tea was provided by Jacky and David and their helpers and the sun shone on us making it a very happy and convivial occasion.
Scott Mann, our local MP, was in attendance throughout and spoke of his enthusiasm for the Community Hub Project. Carol Mould also outlined the strategy and the hopes for the future development of the project with great passion.
A very popular raffle was drawn by Carol Mould, Stuart Robertson and Christine Boswell-Munday with some fabulous prizes on offer. Thank to all the local businesses who donated prizes that made the raffle such a huge success.
The silent auction was also a particular success with prizes donated by Alan Casswell, Jacky Hall, Paul Jackson, Ann Wenger, Sheena Bevis-White and Jay Guest.
The very enjoyable afternoon, which had raised much needed funds for the project, was topped off with a glass of chilled Prosecco. All in all, a perfect afternoon!
Thank you to Jacky and David for their kind and generous hospitality.
