Gleneagles Guest House

Aspirations enjoyed a very sunny afternoon on the terrace at Gleneagles Guest House in July.  We were served a delicious selection of sandwiches and cakes together with scones, cream and jam for a spectacular afternoon tea. 

All washed down with a plentiful supply of tea.  Some guests also chose to enjoy a glass or two of wine to make the most of a glorious summer afternoon. 

Many thanks to those who attended and helped to boost our funds.
