1st Tuesday at 2:30pm

The Community Tea is for people who do not normally get out, although people who assist our party goers are welcome.  It has been going for a number of years and is held on the first Tuesday of the month (except January), and runs from 2.30 pm - 4.00 pm (depending on transport).  

The afternoon starts with a cup of tea and then an activity or entertainment, of which we have had a variety, including

  • Exercises
  • Games
  • Bingo
  • Harvest Festival
  • Greenfield Singers
  • Various performers, including banjo and guitar players and Funtime theatre
  • Handicraft, including making Easter Bunnies out of rice and socks.

It then follows on with homemade afternoon tea – sandwiches, sausage rolls, cake and tea or coffee – and for those who like it - homemade decorated fresh cream trifle (usually to a theme).
The theme for May, for example. was May Day, where 2 large trifles were made (as Greenfield Singers had to be fed!), so the one trifle had a Maypole and Jelly Babies dancing round it, and the other a small bunch of garden flowers, which one of our members took home with her!  

As you can tell, we all have an enjoyable time – both the ladies and gentlemen who come, and the members of church, without whom these pleasant afternoons would not take place.  

We have a core of people who come regularly, but the more the merrier !
If you know of anyone who would like to join us, please let Jane Linford know at Gig Mill Church.
They would be made most welcome.

Thank you to all of you who help in any way – you really do make a difference to these people’s lives.
