This Easter will be an Easter like no other but how's this for a  lovely idea, which is happening in Porlock.

Denise Sage writes:
 "On Easter Sunday (12 April) at 4pm, we are having a Village Cream Tea,  when we all sit down together (in our own homes) and have tea together.  You can take a photo to post on Facebook, send a photo to a friend,  phone someone or do something cleverer with technology that I can’t do,  but it will be a way of keeping us together and ensuring we don’t feel  alone. We are definitely all in this together!

"I’m hoping St  Dubricius will ring The Bell at 4pm (pity we can’t have a whole chime,  but we’re delighted with anything) and Town Crier, Grant Dennis will deliver a  special Easter Day Town Crier’s cry, and then we can listen to Jack Buchanan's 1935 recording of ''Everything Stops For Tea".   (download, or play below...)

"You can make your own tea  or for a treat, Kitnors will deliver a Cream Tea (free delivery) for  just £5, with two large scones, jam, cream and a teabag. (Make sure you  phone well in advance (01643 862643). You might also like to order one  for a surprise for a friend you currently can’t meet up with. They do  vegan, gluten free and even vegan/gluten-free teas.

"We are SO  LUCKY to live here, most of us have a home (and not just a room in a  high rise flat), many have a garden and we’re all surrounded by  wonderful people. WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS – but united we’ll get  through a little better."
