St Buryan ladies prepare a cream tea.

ONCE again the good ladies of St Buryan banded together to celebrate St Piran's Day by offering a 'Proper Cornish Tea' at the village hall.

Splits – with jam first then the cream – and home-made hevva and saffron cakes were all washed down with plenty of cups of tea and served by the ladies in their St Piran aprons.

There was also an all-Cornish produce raffle, with items such as Cornish broccoli, honey and fairings, which raised funds for the hall.

The event was organised by Margaret Hosken, who said: "There were one or two less than last year but it was still a lovely event. Eight children came down from St Buryan to sing Trelawny for us."
