ALZHEIMER’S: Some of the creations at last week’s Alzheimer’s Cup Cake morning at the Pantry were true works of art. Most impressive to see how many calories could be concentrated on such a small base. These gastronomic treats raised a tot of £407 for the Society.

CRICKET: Still on the subject of gastronomy Newick Cricket Club held its Vice Presidents Tea last Sunday afternoon on the Rec Given that the two teams subsequently ate the same fare as the VPs it is difficult to see how they managed to resume the game afterwards. Your correspondent had 27 years’ experience of Rugby teas.
