Anyone for Afternoon Tea?

Anyone for Afternoon Tea?

At Lodge Farm we’re part of a thriving estate, and relish the opportunity to play our role in the wider countryside community.

The Herts Air Ambulance is a Charity that runs on the generosity of donations and support of local businesses. With costs running at around £500,000 a month, the team save lives, reduce or prevent disability, by delivering pre-hospital emergency medical treatment within our rural areas.

Out on our terrace, overlooking the rolling Hertfordshire hills, guests were welcomed with homemade Pink Lemonade and Mojitos mixed up in the Lodge Farm Kitchen, before sipping on Prosecco.

With bubbles, came stacks of neat sandwiches and homemade quiche of which we’re confident Mary Berry would be proud (no soggy bottoms here).

The terrace provided the perfect place to enjoy the late afternoon warmth, and as the raffle unfolded to much excitement from a table of particularly lucky winners and funds raised reached £425, it was decided; this an event to be repeated.
