Saturday 27th May 2017 Richard and Linda Escott held a CAFOD "Afternoon Tea Party", at their home in Bideford. Linda reports:-"The grey, misty day was a disappointing start to the CAFOD Tea Afternoon after the drama of the previous Saharan like heat and wind, followed by a most dramatic thunder storm the night before. At North View Hill, Bideford the day got better as the weather warmed and brightened and the good folks rolled in. Craft, bric-à-brac, plants, books, cakes, plus craft beer tasting added to the mix with delicious teas being served in a crowded garden and house. Some people popped in for a while, others stayed all afternoon. The helpers were better than ever and the atmosphere was one of fun, communication, and good will. Linda and Richard were delighted with the outcome as £1070 was made for CAFOD. Thank-you to everyone who helped, attended and supported the day."
May 2017 The Knights of Saint Columba organised
