The monotony of lockdown for those of our neighbours who had to self isolate over these past months was breached for the first time this week, when Boxmoor Good Neighbours invited a small group of our neighbours to an afternoon cream tea, with scones, cream and fruit jam.
The setting for this event could not have been more perfect in a rustic landscaped garden, with the presence of chickens clucking in the background.
In an atmosphere of conviviality and friendly conversation neighbours from BGN thoroughly enjoyed themselves and experienced, for the first time in months, the sense that normality had returned.
Volunteers from Boxmoor Good Neighbours were on hand to provide table service and to ensure social distancing was observed.
A big thank you to Claire from Boxmoor Coffee & Wine who helped prepare the delicious cream tea.
The verdict was that Boxmoor Good Neighbours should hold two further tea events in August for our neighbours living in Boxmoor.
