C.C.C. Spen Valley. Yorkshire day event. Sponsored by Yorkshire Tea

29 Jul

Twenty four of us from the Spen Valley group of the Clandestine Cake Club, gathered on Saturday 27th July, 2013 to celebrate Yorkshire Day a few days early  (it is actually on 1st August) and we were excited to have Lynn Hill from CCC HQ join us for the event. Even more members had booked but unfortunately two people with guests couldn’t join us due to illness. They did let me know though that they couldn’t come, which is good.

We chose Liversedge Parish Centre for our event. It has a great room with lots of space to move around and a good kitchen. We put up tressle tables so lots of us could sit round together and chat and drink Yorkshire tea (and coffee and soft drinks) and asked for donations in lieu of payment for drinks so we could leave a good donation to the Centre for use of the room. There were comments made of what a great place the Centre was for such an event.

Yorkshire day is actually on 1st August and Yorkshire Tea kindly sponsored our event and sent various items for us. Yorkshire Tea, cups, bunting, balloons and a table cloth.

Thanks to everyone for coming and making this event a success and thanks to all who helped putting out the tables and chairs, clearing them away again, clearing up, washing up and vacuuming up the crumbs etc.

    Ooh it looks like you had a great morning. The cakes all looked delicious. It’s interesting to see a Ripon Spice Loaf! I’m also intrigued to know what was in the Batley Cake? x
