Peace of Cake

We were thrilled with the success of our Peace of Cake Tea Party in an English Garden as an event to launch the start of our Summer Exhibition at the Gallery. Pat Clare's glorious paintings set the scene, with lots of vases of flowers in the Gallery, vintage china and silver teapots, scones with cream and jam, cakes and savouries it really was a very English Tea Party. 
 The purpose of the 'Peace' was to focus on the work of the Peace Keepng Charity CORD, with sponsorship from Yorkshire Tea and Susan Barlow of Cord, we were able to raise nearly £50 at our Tea Party. 

As a Voluntary Leader of  Newport WiRE Network, I have been pleased to help set up a similar event at our September Meeting, so near to the International Day of Peace (20th September)
