A coconut shy was just one of the attractions on offer for both young and old at the Cream Tea afternoon at Pamela and Peter Farmer's.The weather was kind and their garden was full of relaxed people having a good natter. By the end of the afternoon all the scones and most of the delicious cakes cakes had been eaten.
Even better — we made a profit of £437.51 for the Cancer and Haematology Unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
