Friday Food Day Baking
It is with a some sadness that we have made a rather difficult decision to cease having our Food day morning tea bake sales. The sales will end in a few weeks time. While we have a great deal of eager children wishing to purchase a hot chocolate or cake for morning tea we simply do not have the baking to sell.
Purchasing food in to sell is of course an option but a far more expensive one. We thank you for all the support you have given by baking and of course purchasing morning tea treats over the years.
