Moss Vale Girl Guides held a high tea at the Robertson School of Arts

Three Moss Vale Girl Guides held a Highlands High Tea to raise money for their upcoming camp.

The high tea was held at Robertson School of Arts on Sunday, March 15 by guides Bridie Brumfield, Daisy Brumfield and Sienna Rowe.

Deahne Brumfield, the mother of Bridie and Daisy, said the girls had worked hard towards raising funds for their Jamboree camp in Sydney later this year.

“So far they have held a lemonade stand, an Easter raffle and a Robertson Market stall selling lots of their home-made goodies such as glycerin soaps, cupcakes and hand-made jewelry,” Brumfield said.

Ms Brumfield said the high tea was a success and catered for thirty people.

“Sunday’s Highlands’ High Tea was a nice opportunity for locals, friends and families to enjoy a relaxing time together,” Brumfield said.

“Everyone enjoyed themselves – old and young.”

The youngest attendee was two-year-old Charlotte Bush and the oldest attendee was 90-year-old Valda Bowhay.

12-year-old girl guide Bridie Brumfield said the high tea provided her with the chance to feel like royalty for an afternoon. 

Those who attended enjoyed a fine selection of tea and coffee along with jam and cream scones.

The scones were made by Sienna’s chef father, Matt Rowe.

The high tea also included finger sandwiches, savory pastries, mini frittatis, chocolate brownies, lemon tarts, and chocolate truffle balls.

The guides said they were very grateful to volunteers Lizzie, Judy and Maureen who supplied crockery, cutlery, linen and table flowers. 

Moss Vale Girl Guides volunteer Judy Fisk said Bridie, Daisy and Sienna had worked hard together as a team.

The funds raised will be divided equally between the three girls to contribute to their camp fee.

The Sydney Jamboree will be held on September 30 to October 6 at Newington Armory, Sydney Olympic Park.

The cost of the camp is approximately $1500 per person.

Between the guides, they have managed to raise $1200 so far.
