Morning tea, it was huge
Yesterday's Biggest Morning Tea in Urunga was more than big, it was huge. Hundreds of people poured down the path into Norma and Bruce Parker's (pictured) backyard from 9am to find a seat among the sea of marquees and chairs ? thanks to the efforts of Bruce and his golfing mates, who had been carting furniture since 4:30am. Inside, tables groaned with homebaked goodies and tea and coffee flowed. Business around the trade tables was brisk and the raffle books were rapidly filling. The aim was to beat last year's cancer research fundraising record of $5050. Norma was optimistic as she greeted old friends, checked trays of food and took a few moments to be part of the boot-scooting entertainment.
