October 2016

Our October cafe began, as usual, with a room full of friendly faces and some word puzzles on the table to amuse everyone. There seemed to be something missing though: the kitchen was very quiet and our usually busy catering team were joining in with the chatter instead of putting the kettle on and getting the cups and saucers out!
The mystery was quickly solved – we were soon to be off to C-Bay at West Pentire for a cream tea.  However, first there were some songs to join in with and then some cryptic word and picture brain teasers to solve. 

Coupled with the usual chatter and laughter the time flew by, and before long we were piling into cars for the short journey down the road to C-Bay – the restaurant on the cliffs with the wonderful view over Crantock Beach and up the coast to Trevone.
We were soon enjoying a most delicious tea of scones with jam and cream.  After our talk by Philip Rodda at the previous cafe, everyone was pleased to see that they were served the Cornish way (cream on top) which, of course, made them taste even better! It was great for everyone to have a change of scenery, and we were delighted that our busy kitchen helpers could come and join us.
In two weeks time (17th October) we will be back in our usual venue (Crantock Village Hall) for another cafe with something interesting and enjoyable to do, and another chance for a laugh and a chat.
