The annual Artaban cream tea was a rousing success again in 2014, with a turn-out of over 75 people, and a very popular bake table. Gwen Lamacraft made her renowned pies, which sold out immediately, as they do every year. There was also a white elephant table, a canteen with Artaban t-shirts, and Jody Simmons' beautiful greeting cards.
As always, tea-goers of all generations enjoyed pouring over the Artaban photo albums and finding old friends in snapshots dating from the 1920s onward.
