St George’s Day Tea Party in The Square

Grayshott celebrated St George’s Day in traditional style with an afternoon Tea Party in the Square.

Hundreds of villagers came along to enjoy a cream tea accompanied by jazz duo Mike Deighan & Richard White.


There was plenty to go around thanks to the many volunteers who had brought along fresh baked scones go together with the jam and cream donated by Sainsbury’s.
