It was organised by Debbie Lindsey with the help of some supportive friends and locals.

Local builder Mark Mann very kindly loaned a filter coffee machine along with fair-trade coffee, filters and hundreds of cups and saucers.

The team also baked cakes and a few of their clients also donated some to sell.

Emily Gordon, who ran the kitchen while Mary Whyman and boss Julie Gordon greeted the guests, said: “We ended up with a fantastic turn out and a wonderful positive buzzing atmosphere.”

Chris Martin, one of the vendors, won the Place the Cherry on The Gateaux contest while Sue Leadbetter correctly guessed the length of a sausage roll. Both very generously donated their winnings back to the cause.
