This annual event begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. Not really a tea, but a feast, this is truly a beautiful bountiful luncheon where you can share sandwiches, finger foods, cookies, cake and other delectable food items St. Luke's presents here. Come with a friend, reserve your ticket for $6 and then shop a bit without pressure. There are special handcrafted items, ornaments, baked goods, jams and jellies and Grandma's Attic which has a long tradition of your finding a treasure among glass, china, jewelry and other fine items. Then it is time to sit down with your friends and enjoy the sweets and sandwiches over your tea or coffee, poured by one of our hostesses. Little hostesses will probably come to your table to offer more yummy items for your empty plate.

Pruning and shaping are also beneficial to the town - making the area more appealing and attractive for residents and visitors.

Chester Townscape continued its fall tradition of planting daffodils at key public locations in Chester to increase the display of color that will emerge next spring. This year's planting was of the bright and perky Goblet. With a yellow trumpet and white petals, Goblet will coordinate perfectly with last year's yellow King Alfred bulbs and provide additional interest and color in 2016.
