Never mind the general election – 17 July 2013 is a historic date for an entirely different reason for Patsy Flagg.
It’s the date of her 100th “homely coffee morning”. And just to be different, she decided to hold it in the afternoon.
She has opened her home, Harlyn, to 1,615 visitors since holding her first coffee morning in February 2002, in aid of the St James’ Church restoration fund. Over the years she has raised £517.40 in aid of 14 different charities.
