THE Shop at Bromsberrow celebrated national chocolate week by holding a themed day for its customers, including a cupcake decorating competition for local children. Hot chocolate served with marshmallows and sprinkles accompanied by a huge selection of home baked cakes had customers queuing for extra helpings. Organiser Paggie Jones said, “This was a first for the shop, but has proved to be great fun and certainly brought the villagers from this parish and the surrounding areas together and this is exactly what we hoped to achieve. The community shop represents a friendly meeting place, a great space for families to sit in unhurried comfort to chat and enjoy first class refreshment for which the shop is well known." Events manager James Dowdall remarked that everyone had worked very hard to ensure that the chocolate day was successful and he thanked community shop volunteers and all customers for their loyal support.

Not only did David and Leonie lay on some special music for the occasion, but they also baked and gave everyone a slice of a very special anniversary cake.

FRIENDS from many different organisations gathered together at Leadon Bank for a very special ‘posh and dainty tea party’ to remember Margaret Eaton who died in August. Margaret was a well-known figure in Ledbury, tirelessly involved with many good causes, including the Evergreen Club, which she managed for more than 20 years. Formerly a nurse in the Red Cross, Margaret had seen service in the Solomon Islands, Bermuda and always said that her favourite overseas posting was to the Pacific island of Kiribati. Barbara Langlois, who now runs the Evergreen Club said, “Margaret had very high standards and her idea of an afternoon tea was to be served dainty sandwiches with crusts removed, bite-sized meringues, éclairs and other fancies, with pots of tea all served on starched white table cloths, and of course the best china. Margaret was well loved and greatly respected and we shall all mourn her passing.”
