Wow, What a weekend!

The Best Yet!

Cakes and Teas!

A big thank you to all of you who helped make the weekend such an amazing success. Crowds of people descended on Oxhill from far and wide. Nuneaton, Coventry and Solihull to name just a few places we heard mentioned. We were busy all day long, both Saturday and Sunday, and managed to raise a staggering 760 on the teas alone! When you consider that a of cup of tea and a slice of cake costs on average 1.50, you begin to realise how many cups of tea were made and just how much washing up had to be done!

So a really big thank you to everyone who contributed in making it all such success, to everyone who helped at the hall, served the endless cups of teas and did the piles of washing up and to everyone who supplied us with the delicious cakes. We were so busy some hardy folk went home Saturday and baked more cakes and scones. But even so for the first time ever we actually ran out of cakes on Sunday, so you know what that means! Yes, we will need more next year!

We received loads of compliments about the cakes, one gentleman actually saying we served the best homemade cakes in the area and that he always makes a point of visiting Oxhill Scarecrow Weekend just for the cakes. No pressure then!

Everyone worked incredibly hard but I hope we had some fun along the way.

THANK YOU!

P.S. I will understand if nobody answers their phone next year or rushes off in the opposite direction!
