The Mayor and Mayoress of Barnsley, Councillor Jeff Ennis and Mrs Margaret Ennis are hosting a special St George’s Day coffee morning on Monday 23 April and would like to invite residents to join them and celebrate England’s national day over coffee and cake.
The coffee morning will take place in the Town Hall’s reception room between 10am and 12 noon. There will be no shortage of delicious cakes, buns and yummy treats on offer - as well as plenty of tea, coffee and cold refreshments. It’s a great excuse to catch up with friends over a cuppa and cake - all whilst raising money for the Mayor’s charity which is supporting the Cure Myeloma Appeal and Barnsley Riding for the Disabled.
Council employees will be contributing towards the cakes and treats on offer by taking part in the Great Barnsley Bake Off. Head judge will be none other than Barnsley’s very own Dickie Bird who’ll have the lucky job deciding which yummy treat bowls him over the most! Once star baker has been announced, all contributions will then be sold as part of the coffee morning.
The Mayor, Councillor Jeff Ennis, said: “we’re really looking forward to hosting our first St George’s Day coffee morning. It’s a great way for us to celebrate England’s national day and gives residents the chance to enjoy cake in our splendid Town Hall – whilst raising money for my charities which are very close to my heart.
“If my last coffee morning is anything to go by, I’d advise guests to bring a container with them so they can take extras home or back to the office as I’m sure temptation will get the better of them!”
St George’s Day, also known as the Feast of Saint George is England’s national day to remember England’s patron saint - St George on the anniversary of his death. According to legend, St George was a soldier in the Roman army who killed a dragon and saved a princess!
