Brightling Cafe this weekend

(Posted on behalf of Katrina Blench)
Saturday 27 November 10am-12 noon
Brightling Village Hall

This the last Brightling Cafe of the year. Expect a seasonal flavour with stalls run by local artists and makers offering paintings and cards, pom-poms, gift tags and paper crafts and woven willow bird feeders and wreaths for those special gifts you have been looking for.

There is an advent calendar for one lucky person, help yourself to a secret Santa book and you can make a paper snowflake to take home. There will be mulled apple juice and mince pies with the usual coffee and tea to enjoy.

Judy from Asselton Cakes and Preserves will be selling her homemade cakes, quiches, marmalades and special treats and you can order your Christmas goodies from her too.

It’s not too late to book a table to sell your wares contact

We’ve been asked to pass on this notice about the Brightling Cafe on Saturday 30 October 10am-12 noon, at Brightling Village Hall.
Judy from Asselton Cakes & Preserves will be selling her homemade cakes, quiches and marmalades. Treat yourself to coffee or perhaps a Halloween hot chocolate with marshmallows and a slice of cake, then try your hand at pumpkin bowling. Bring a pumpkin or borrow one of ours … there will be wine for the winner.
And for children some biscuit decorating – make them really scary then eat them!

If you have any surplus produce for the MAD (Made And Donated) community table or have anything you want to sell bring it along on the morning – no charge to sell (no cakes please – Judy’s sells those).
