Stokesley Bear: June 2018
I am a bear that enjoys a cup of tea and a slice of cake from time to time. So, when I heard that there would be free coffee and cake at Stokesley Methodist Church on Saturday 2 June, I knew that I had to go. My mind was made up when I heard that Easby also had a coffee morning. Easby's coffee morning was held at Ingelby Greenhow Village Hall.
I had never been to Ingelby Greenhow so I wasn't sure how easy it would be to find. I followed the road along from Easby. A sign in the road announced that I had arrived at my destination. There was a recommended donation of £1.50 on the door to get in. Being a bear, I was a bit short on change. As it happened, a previous entrant had left a cheque for £100 so I was allowed to go in! Once inside, I was offered a cup of tea and had a chance to look around. There was a raffle and a cake stall. The hall was light and a lovely venue for a coffee morning. Others seemed to agree with me because there was a good turnout. I couldn't stay long, though, as I planned to get to Stokesley's coffee morning, which was on at the same time.
When I arrived at Stokesley's coffee morning, I was greated by the welcome words of 'Would you like a coffee and slice of cake? It's free!' I had been good at Easby's coffee morning and steered clear of the cakes so I felt that I could indulge. I sat on one of the chairs arranged on the street at the front of the church; a cup of tea in one paw and and iced cake in the other. Lots of people were passing by as it was market day in Stokesley. Some people stopped. Alongside the cakes and coffee, lists of events were being handed out with a tea bag attached to it. I collected my list and complimentary brew. I was already looking forward to enjoying it back at home. Only next time I would need to find a slice of cake to go with it myself!
