    What a beautiful afternoon we had at the High Tea in Chideock House Garden last Friday. The food was superb – delicious cakes, sandwiches, pastries and strawberries all served on beautiful china. Well done to Anna Dunn and her team for organising such a splendid afternoon and I am told £348 was raised for the Chideock Village Hall.
