Huge thanks to all those who came along and enjoyed an eclectic mix of Christmas music, mulled wine, mince pies and good company.
I am delighted to report that thanks to your generosity we have raised...
£300:00 for the Air Ambulance
Hope you all have a stress free Christmas and a healthy New Year.
(On behalf of the 'Brigsteer Band' and 'Untethered')
The Tea Shop will be open again next Tuesday, December 19th, in the Village Hall from 2.00 to 4.00 pm. In addition to the usual tea, coffee, homemade cakes and mince pies there will be even more mulled wine, and the Brigsteer Band will provide background music (so a bit like the Palm Court really).
Come and join us at the Village Hall on Friday 22nd December for an evening of fun, music, mince pies and mulled wine. There will be two bands playing all your favourite Christmas tunes
for you to sing along to (words provided).
To make sure we have enough pies and wine for all please contact Mick Brookes at email@example.com or 07738756301.
Entrance is free but you have to pay to get out! (There will be a retiring collection to cover costs and any surplus will go to the Cumbrian Air Ambulance.)
Hope to see you there
Thank you to all who came to and supported the tea shop yesterday. Thanks to your generosity we raised a magnificent £82.10 for Manna House.
A great big thanks also, as ever, to the wonderful Brisgteer bakers.
Remember the next Tea Shop will be on Tuesday 19th December with live Christmas music.
Just to remind everyone Tea Shop is on next Tuesday 28th November from 2pm to 4pm in the Village Hall. As this is a Christmas themed Tea Shop, there will be mulled wine on offer as well as the usual tea and cakes. There will also be Christmas cards, wrapping paper, mince pies, etc available to buy.

An evening of Tango and Waltzes
It is (almost) the month before Christmas, and the sell out audience enjoyed a fun night of entertainment...theatre, antics, comedy and tears, and a bar service at half time.
Many thanks to Richard and Shelley who arranged everything with excellent raffle prize administration from Peter.
This excellent band was very well received when they played in Brigsteer last Autumn and now they are back! Their latest CD, "Unafraid and Sober", released earlier this year will be available on the night.
Hunter Muskett was formed in the 70's (yes they are that age!) and reinvented themselves in 2010. Their (original) music is a mixture of soft folk ballads verging towards 'bluegrass' and they have a story.
Come and join us on Sunday 22nd October for a memorable evening.
Entry: £8 in advance: £10 on the door
Contact Mick Brookes: 07738756301 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information
Bring your own refreshments!!
See you there
