Isle of Wight Day Treasure Hunt & Coffee Morning

On a lovely sunny Saturday morning, we set off to the Parish Church to join in the Treasure Hunt. Armed with clues & a pencil, off we went on a walk around our lovely village, answering the questions set by Jill Fothergill & Bridget Garton. By the time we'd got to the 12th Century Church we were in need of some sustenance - luckily for us there were refreshments laid out for any weary travellers. Ticking off more clues and after a much needed biccie, we carried on with our walk. An hour and 13 mins after starting the hunt, we arrived back at the Parish Church where coffees/teas/juices and cake were on offer. It was a lovely way to see the village whilst finding out some interesting facts along the way. A massive thank you to Jill Fothergill for all her time & effort in putting the event together and also to Bridget & June for running the tea stall & to everyone who made the delicious cakes.

Get yer bunting out!

Don't forget folks that next Saturday 23rd September is Isle of Wight Day, so it would be really nice if we could get St. Lawrence to be awash with bunting. Let's give the Bake Off tent a run for its money!!
