      Famiy History Group Afternoon Tea

      An afternoon tea in Cheadle to thank Gllian for the 18 years she has run the group.
      location_on Bill & Betty's, Cheadle access_time 2:30 PM
      The group will be taking tea together at Bill and Betty's in order to thank Gillian for running the group for 18 years. Sadly the group is now closing as we have been unable to find anyone to take over.
      It will be at Bill & Betty's in Cheadle on October 19th at 2.30pm.
      The cost of the tea is £10.95, and the tea shop require us to pay this up front. Therefore I will start collecting this at the August U3A meeting. I will also need to know whether you will require a vegetarian or gluten free tea.
