Calling all cake bakers!!!

Can you help?

Each year at the Friends of the Blythe Hill Fields Festival, the Friends sell cakes to help cover the cost of putting on the Festival. Plus, any profits from the Festival are used to improve the park's facilities. The cakes are all baked and donated by lovely local people.

So if you feel you could help us by baking a cake or two, please get in touch by emailing volunteers@blythehillfields.org.uk or calling Ellie on 07786 331007.

The Festival will be held on 4 July this year, from 12 - 5 pm. Please come and join us! For more information please check out our Facebook page or our website: http://www.blythehillfields.co.uk
