Tuesday Teas are thriving on Zoom too! Love, laughter and tales of life! We never know where the conversation will go...  Sadly the treat of home-made cake has to be limited to your own provision.

 

 

 

The information below is what we used to do, and one day we hope to return to this.  

We are also planning to continue Zooming our services long-term when restrictions are lifted.
