THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING SHEPTON MONTAGUE VILLAGE HALL!
On Sunday 12th June 2016 many of you came along to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday by joining in our Tea Party in the Village Hall and we had a great turn out. Thank you all so much for coming! (The weather wasn’t too bad either!)
The selection of food was amazing – sandwiches, scones, cupcakes, cakes, crispies and jellies all accompanied by a cup of tea or two! Thank you again to all those who baked scones or cakes.
As you know there was a Right Royal Quiz which you possibly found a little challenging unless you had access to 3G!
