Maltese Club 85th Anniversary Tea Party – At Baginton Village Hall on Sunday 21st July 2019

The weather was beautiful on Sunday when the Maltese Club held their Tea Party in aid of Maltese Rescue, people and their dogs really enjoyed themselves with races and fun classes, prizes and rosettes were won, we had a large raffle, tombola and a plant stand. The kitchen was busy all day serving sandwiches, Cornish cream teas, cakes, strawberries and cream and hot and cold drinks. The day finished around 5.00 pm, comments from people who participated said what a lovely day it was and they would be looking forward to next year.

The amount raised for Maltese Rescue was £465.00 approximately . The organisers take this opportunity  to thank all of the committee and helpers for all their hard work which made the day a great success, and of course not forgetting all the people who turned out to enjoy the day.
