Bank Holiday Bake off!

The Horse and Groom pub in New Alresford hosted their own bake off competition on Bank Holiday Monday!

Horse & Groom, New Alresford

Locals popped in for a pint and checked out the delicious bakes, which were judged by Reverend Julia Myles and the New Alresford WI group.

There was also live music and face painting throughout the day!

They raised £200 for Naomi House & Jacksplace, which will help us continue providing expert hospice care to local life-limited and life-threatened children, young adults and their families.

Elliott Dickinson, Manager of the The Horse & Groom said:

It is with great joy that I can reflect on how the community of New Alresford, when asked who should we do a charity event for, chose Naomi House & Jacksplace Hospices. Being part of a community that feels more like an extension of one’s own family is largely due to the smiles and infectious laughter from the children echoing along the bustling streets, filling us all with delight. Therefore, The Horse & Groom were honoured to have the opportunity to play a small part in supporting the incredible hospices who deliver the crucial emotional, spiritual and development aspects of care for children with life-limiting conditions. We must say a huge thank you to a number of people as it is without doubt that our bake-off would not have been possible without the incredible support from the amazing people working at Naomi House & Jacksplace Hospices, the New Alresford W.I, the wonderful Reverend Julia Myles and of course the fabulous bake-off contestants.
