Charity coffee morning at Hatfield House

TWO well-known Hatfield institutions are joining forces in a large fundraising coffee morning at Hatfield House.

Lady Salisbury, honorary president of Breaks Manor Youth Club, pictured right with Barry Clark, Breaks Manor centre manager and the reverend Richard Pike, vicar of St Etheldreda’s Church, is hosting the event.

Money raised will be shared between St Etheldreda’s Young Parishioners Fund and Breaks Manor Youth Centre.

Mr Clark said: “The magnificent and traditional setting of Hatfield House, coupled with the energy of our young people and supporters, should make this a most pleasing event.”

Tickets cost �3 in advance and �3.50 on the door and includes coffee and biscuits, and free admission to this year’s sculpture exhibition which features the work of the innovative French sculptor, Xavier Veilhan, who has chosen Hatfield House for his UK debut.

The West Gardens will be open in all their spring finery.

Children under 12, who will be admitted free, will also have access to the Bloody Hollow play area.
