On Sunday, the village hall, in Main Street, will be transformed into a 1930s-style hotel restaurant in the style of The Ritz, complete with opulent decoration and charming waiters.

The event, called Putting on the Ritz, is being held to raise money for the village hall restoration fund, to bring the facility into the 21st century.

A carefully research menu has been prepared for the tea, which is set to include egg and cress sandwiches, cheddar cheese with chutney, scones, a plethora of teas, cocktails and canapés aplenty.

There will also be 1930s music from guest singers and instrumentalists to entertain guests, who are welcome to attend in dress from the period if desired.

Organiser Paul Quant said: “We have a major programme of work planned for the village hall to improve the facilities and we hope this event will help add some funds towards it.”

Tickets for the event, which takes place on Sunday at 3pm, cost £10. Contact Patti Quant on 01353 699575 or Alan on 01353 698483.
