We are please to announce that our Biggest Morning High Tea was a success and with your help we raised over $1,450. A big thank you to everyone who came and donated on the day and to Royal CDS , Brasserie Bread, Tempting Treats, Maggie Beer and Allpress for supplying some yummy treats.

Janelle Bloom created a Raspberry Mascarpone Pavlova Roll, scones and Pulled Pork with Chipotle Slaw, which were absolutely delicious and something we will be recreating at home. You can try yourself by downloading Janelle Bloom’s recipes.

Rosalie was the lucky winner of our Alfresco Emporium hamper valued at over $500 and she also won our lolly guessing competition with a guess of 432.

Our High Tea in the Windows was a huge hit with everyone loving the cascade of leaves and flowers hanging from the ceiling as well as the tasty treats. We are going to run the high tea again next year for Biggest Morning Tea with even more seating, so we hope to see you there.
