The 1940s Pop up Tea Room at The Bulls Head on May the 15th was a great success, raising £305 for the Air Ambulance. Guests enjoyed tea and home made cake served in vintage china, with light entertainment from Vera Sharalynne. It was a great team effort and thank you to all the villagers that made all the amazing home made cakes as well as those that helped set up, run and clear away afterwards. We love Nailstone♥️
