Forest Methodists maintain tradition of cream teas

ABOUT 150 scones with jam and cream were ready for the crowds at a special early Liberation cream tea on Saturday.

Forest Methodist Church hosted the event, which was open to all.

A small army of volunteers was on hand to make up the cream teas and ensure everyone had a good time.

It was one of a handful of events which took place on the Saturday, with most events taking place yesterday and centring around the cavalcade route.

Sarah Plumley was one of the stewards. She said they were not sure how busy it would be, but lots of people turned up.

‘It’s traditional that we do this every year,’ she said.

‘We are really pleased how many people have come along.’

Among the crowd in the busy hall was Margaret Tostevin, 68, her sister-in-law Doreen Longnonnec, 69, and Doreen’s sister, Margaret Savident, 73. They are part of the St Paul’s Methodist Church congregation.

Mrs Savident said they came every year for the cream teas.

‘It’s just lovely,’ she said. ‘You get to meet lots of different people.’

At a different table was Forest Methodist Church regular Joyce Baudains, 87, with her friend Win De La Mare, 88.

‘There is just lovely company here,’ Mrs Baudains said. ‘We always enjoy it.’

The event was raising money for Guernsey Mind.
