The FoBs would like to thank EVERYONE who helped make the Tea Tent at the Stately Car Boot Sale yesterday such a roaring success!
Whether you baked a cake, poured coffee or tea, managed the hot water flow, kept the cake table well stocked (including keeping customers calm when there was a demand surge for Victoria Sponge!) cleared dirty cups and saucers from the tables, helped with the washing up (oh, the washing up!) helped with the setting up and the breaking down or simply added to the fabulous atmosphere in the tent, every contribution was enormously appreciated.
We estimate that we served over 700 people in 5 1/2 hours and made a whopping £1,460 net profit!
Special thanks to O.B. Alex Waters who generously provided the marquee (www.castleacrecanvas.co.uk) to Jo and Tom Fitzalan Howard who lent us the tables and chairs and, of course, to the irrepressible Henrietta Lindsell who make the whole thing possible!
Team effort? Spirit of Beeston? I think so!
