Taking place at Crosfield Hall, Romsey. We are looking for help in the lead up to the day and on the actual day. If anyone is available to help in any way we are looking for help with the following – homemade baking for the tea, volunteers to help make sandwiches on the day, any old-fashioned cups and saucers gathering dust (either to borrow or donate). If you think you can help in anyway, please contact us. It’s not too soon to start… We are happy to store cups/saucers if you have any but want to donate, get rid of whilst having a turn out/spring clean of your loft. Above all please spread the word!!
