21st May 2017 Tea and Tales
A lovely time was had by one and all at Sophie Snell’s “Tea and Tales” event on the afternoon of Sunday 21st May 2017 in the Methodist Hall. Following a generous afternoon tea, Sophie entertained us all with traditional tales and songs from around Britain and beyond. I am pleased to report that a magnificent £265.51 was raised for the Scouts’ Hall Fund.
Many, many thanks to Sophie who made no charge for her performance and entertained us so marvellously. Thanks too to all our bakers and to our helpers on the day. Thank you also to Mindy Atwell, Community Champion, at Tesco Superstore (Mickleover) who generously offered and gave us a donation of mixed cakes and scones after being asked to put up a poster for the event.
You might like to know that Sophie’s three sons have all been members of the 63rd Derby Scout Group. Sophie Snell is a professional storyteller who entertains all ages at festivals, museums, historic houses and arts and community spaces across the UK.
