July 2019 Extra

When visitors come to our Memory Cafe they can be sure that in addition to an entertaining and social afternoon they will be treated to a tasty afternoon tea with home-made refreshments provided by generous supporters from in and around Crantock.
However, on a warm and sunny mid-July afternoon a special treat was in store: an outing to nearby Callestick to include a cream tea and a chance to find out how ‘Callestick ice-cream’ is made. On arrival, many of us took the opportunity to sample the ices, the only problem being to decide which of the delicious flavours to try with so many on offer!

 With tables reserved for us, inside or out, there was a chance to relax and plenty of time for a chat and our usual word-search and quiz to tackle, as well as copies of ‘Sparkle’ magazine to peruse. Meanwhile, groups were able to go upstairs to a viewing platform where, in addition to watching ice-cream tubs being filled and boxed on the production floor below, they could read about the history and development of the company since it began in 1989.

Fresh scones with jam and clotted cream were served at the tables with a welcome cup of tea and it was soon time for Richard to reveal the answers to the quiz, although it has to be said that in between eating, drinking and chatting quite a few hadn’t got around to tackling it!

As usual time flew by and Richard thanked our Callestick hosts for providing us with the ingredients for a lively and stimulating afternoon.
We made our way home with plenty to think and talk about before our next café at Crantock Village Hall on Monday 5th August from 2pm.
