A Father’s Day cream tea ‘exceeded expectations’ and raised hundreds of pounds for Weston Hospicecare.
The Cheddar Friends of Weston Hospicecare held a successful cream tea event in the orchard of Rockland House, in Cheddar, on Sunday.
Patrick and Sue Emett opened their home to the public with help from the group's committee and volunteers.
The event was well attended by 135 people who braved the unseasonable weather to enjoy the cream tea and some delicious cakes.
Entertainment was provided by the Cheddar U3A hand bell ringers and Amfers Band.
