Teashop celebrates birthday with free pastries

FREE pastries will be given away at a tea room to help mark its first birthday.
Visitors to the Douglas Macmillan Hospice-run Carmountside Tea Rooms will be given pastries with every tea or coffee purchased on September 22 and 23.
The shop, which is open from 9.30am until 4.15pm, was taken on by the cancer charity in conjunction with Stoke-on-Trent City Council last September.
Guy Clarke, business development manager at the Blurton-based hospice, said: "We would like to thank the supporters that have allowed the tea rooms to go from strength to strength over the past 12 months.
"The volunteers have also been exceptional, and we're always on the lookout for more people to help. Catering experience isn't required as training is given."
Anyone wishing to volunteer should contact Louise McCartney on 01782 344332 or email
