The club’s first fundraiser for Cornwall’s Air Ambulance took place at Chapel’s Main Hall, arranged by leader Rosemary Bray.
Members and friends enjoyed an hour’s frantic Beetle Drive. The tension was palpable, as tables of players strove to be the first to yell ” Beetle!” and apple themed prizes were awarded to ten of the 32 participants. An array of sweet and savoury dishes provided a well-earned apple supper. Rosemary thanked everyone for contributing to a fun evening, and £62 was raised for the club’s 2012-2013 charity.
The following week a discussion took place about our stall for the bazaar at Chapel Feast. Our theme was ‘the Olympics’ and a display of memorabilia was placed on the wall behind Monday Club’s stall. Customers were keen to buy cakes, chutneys, bric-a-brac etc which helped to raise money for chapel funds. Low tea was served for those who wanted light refreshments and high tea was served prior to a concert by St Keverne Male Voice Choir.
Sarah Trewhella from Helford Creek gave a very interesting talk on the history of how she and her husband set up their apple juice business 12 years ago. On their 18th century farm they produce a wide range of Helford Creek natural juices and cider. The apples are hand-pressed to preserve the character and freshness of the apples. We were fortunate to taste many of the juices produced, which went well with a supper consisting of cheeses, chutneys and apple cake. Helford Creek juices can be bought at local farm shops and markets and are also stocked in a number of places in London eg Kew Gardens, the National Gallery and at St Pancras Station in London.
Members meet in Mullion Methodist Chapel Hall on Mondays at 7pm. New members are always welcomed.
