Local charity Homecall is inviting people along to a delicious cream tea afternoon on Saturday June 27.

The event is set within two pretty gardens and runs from 2.30pm - 5pm.

The charity provides a home visiting scheme for blind and partially sighted people living in Bexhill and surrounding areas

Located next door to one another, number 78 Cranston Avenue and number 80 Cranston Avenue have joined forces for the afternoon in order to raise funds.

A cream tea will be served at 80 Cranston Avenue which includes home-made scones with strawberries, jam and lashings of clotted cream.

There will also be a wide range of stalls located in both gardens for you to browse, which will include delicious home-made cakes, bric a brac, jewellery, books, knitted items and crafts, kitchen garden produce and plants, painted and pine furniture.

Entry which includes the delicious cream tea and gardens is £5 on the day children free of charge if accompanied by an adult. There is easy on-road parking nearby.

Leah Norman, from Homecall, said: “We provide a free service, funded entirely by grants, legacies, donations and ongoing fundraising events.

“Homecall currently maintains a list of between 50 and 60 volunteer visitors with a similar number of clients.

“Through our network of trained and vetted volunteer visitors we offer regular visits to clients usually once a week, to help with a variety of tasks made difficult by sight loss. Our volunteer visitors help the substantially visually impaired maintain their independence, stay in their own homes and relieve social isolation enabling access to the community.”
