Afternoon tea in the mayor's garden
 
A traditional afternoon tea was served at a garden party that raised over £1,000 for the charities chosen by the Mayor of Epping and the President of the Rotary Club of Epping during their year in office.

Fifty people supported the event which was held at the Epping home of Town Mayor councillor Les Burrows and his wife Carol.

Both Cllr Burrows and former Town Mayor Cllr Barbara Scruton, who is this year's Rotary Club of Epping President, are supporting the Heart of Epping appeal - which is raising money for a community centre adjoining St John’s Church in St John's Road - and the national children’s bibic, which provides therapies for children with developmental difficulties such as developmental delay, autism and dyslexia.

The charity's aim is to make life at home and at school more functional and manageable.

Sandwiches, cakes, pastries and scones and jam with clotted cream were enjoyed by the guests who also supported a raffle.

Mr Burrows said: "I would like to thank everyone who supported the garden pary and helped us raise such a marvellous amount of money for our two chosen charities."

Mrs Scruton said: "The mayor and I are have joined forces and are supporting two great causes.

"We intend to hold further fundraising events thoroughout our year of office to support bibic with its work and to help raise money for the new Heart of Epping community facilities."
