Apple competition!

Just a reminder to bake your best apple cake (or pie) to enter in our Apple Cake (or pie) competition on this Saturday – entries to be submitted between 2 and 2.30pm please.  There will be a small prize for the winner and for the runner-up.  After judging, the delicious cakes will be divided up for sale with the teas – so everyone gets a chance to taste them – with the proceeds donated to KCCLP.  So all for a great cause!
Also, any offers of help with serving teas during the afternoon would also be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks
