A “Mad Hatters Tea Party” update


alice-1-revWe’re still looking for:

* cakes for the Mad Hatter Tea…because you can never have too much cake! (The cakes don’t have to be Alice-themed, like this one…but oh my, isn’t it amazing?)

* people (children and adults) who are willing to wear Alice costumes on the day, kindly lent to us by the Chagford Pantomime and other local thespians.

* any Alice-in-Wonderland-type props you might have that we can borrow for decorating the hall.

If you can contribute in any of these ways, please contact Friends and we’ll send your message on to the right contact person.

Otherwise you can contribute by coming to the party — and bringing your family, friends, and neighbors too!
