Afternoon tea in the Village Hall

thornby1On Sunday 10th June, Thornby's Big Breakfast took place.

Residents and friends from surrounding villages enjoyed a tasty breakfast, prepared by the Village Hall Committee members in aid of village hall restoration funds.

It was a lovely sunny morning and our pretty village hall was filled with people and chatter as they relaxed and read the newspapers over a leisurely breakfast. The menu offered a Full English Breakfast, Bacon or Sausage Butties plus the option of Croissants and Danish Pastries all served with fresh coffee and tea.

The event was very well attended and the majority of people asked us to do it more often. thornby2

Our thanks go to all those who attended, it really helps us in our efforts to maintain and restore our charming historic hall and raise much needed funds towards our £5000 target to repair the bell tower.

Don't miss out next time - as it was so popular we will be doing another breakfast this year - so watch out for details!! Alison Pallister
