August Teas and YFCs
If you haven't already been along to the August Teas at St John's then take the opportunity next Sunday.
There's a fascinating display by the Cheshire Young Farmers' Clubs of pictures and memorabilia describing the successes of these fantastic rural organisations over many years.
If you do go, take the time to flick through some of the books of meeting minutes from the 1950s onwards, as they chart what great social and educational opportunities the YFCs provided and still provide.
And of course, there's always lots of lovely homemade cake and, in my experience, tea custom made to a perfect strength.
As always, click on the pictures for a closer view. In at least one of them, you'll find some very well-known Chelford residents.
