Ayscoughfee Hall is holding this year’s Crafternoon Tea this Friday (8 November), offering free craft activities, hot drinks and even a biscuit or two, while also raising awareness and promoting conversation around mental health and wellbeing.
The event is organised by South Holland District Council’s Communities Team and will run from 11.30am – 2.30pm at Ayscoughfee Hall and Gardens in Spalding. People are welcome to pop in for half an hour on their lunch break or stay for the whole duration, to join a relaxing afternoon of chatting and crafting.
Admission to the event, which is a mind initiative is completely free, as are the refreshments. There will be activities designed for all ages and people, and anyone is welcome to come along and join in.
Cllr Gary Taylor, South Holland District Council Deputy Leader and portfolio holder for communities and facilities said: “Mental Health is such an important topic that still doesn’t get enough time or publicity, and great events like this allow us to have the opportunity to think and speak freely in a relaxing and comfortable environment.”
“I would encourage anyone to come along for a cup of tea and a biscuit on their lunch break and take advantage of this fantastic free opportunity. We are hoping to see as many people there as possible for a great afternoon of crafting, snacking and chatting, whilst remembering how important it is to talk, and share how we are feeling.”
