Taking place from 2-4.30pm on 6 March, the tea will include a selection of savoury snacks, cakes and pastries to be enjoyed in the property’s grand surroundings – a sure-fire hit with any Downton Abbey fan mums out there. Tickets start at £11.95, but you can upgrade the standard tea to a sparkling one for £20.95. Why not make it a real treat? To book, call 01945 583463 or go online.
Cambridge Flower School
Calling all mothers, grandmothers and daughters, Cambridge Flower School is opening its doors and inviting you to spend some quality time with one another over spring bouquets. On 5 March from 10am to 1pm, book a place on the school’s ‘Mother’s Day Special Workshop’ and join a loved one in creating an arrangement using seasonal flowers. Your arrangement will be completed with a gift box and you can take all of it home as a memento of the occasion. Each ticket is valid for two places to encourage families to pair up with one another. They’re £120 per pair, and can be bought online.
Lovely King Street café Afternoon Tease is getting in on the Mother’s Day action by offering a takeaway afternoon tea for two. These adorable little treat boxes will contain one of the café’s famous cheese scones, as well as crumpets, home-made jam and marmalade and, of course, a couple of slices of their delicious cakes.
Takeaway afternoon teas must be ordered in advance (orders taken up to Wednesday 2 March), and cost £20. To order or for more info, email [email protected].
Junior Prime Brass at All Saints’ Parish Church
On 6 March at 4pm, local groups Junior Prime Brass, Tongue Twisters & Vox Pop will be performing a Mother’s Day Concert at All Saints’ Parish Church in Cottenham. Entry is free, though there’ll be a collection in aid of the church. Junior Prime Brass will be conducted by Christopher Lawrence, and the Tongue Twisters & Vox Pop conducted by Siobhan Lihoreau. The concert will feature local children and young people, so support your community whilst enjoying a pleasant afternoon in a beautiful location.
Bourn Golf and Leisure
Visit Bourn Golf and Leisure club on 6 March and choose between a two- or three-course lunch to enjoy with your mum. Both meals are full of a variety of options to suit any taste. For starters, you have choices which range from leek and potato soup to crispy duck salad with hoisin sauce, melon with summer berries, and smooth chicken liver pâte. For your main course, choose between various roasts (we like the sound of roast pork with apricot and onion stuffing), sea bass, and baked pimento and artichoke risotto. There’ll be a range of desserts to choose from on the day, and a cheese board available for a £1 supplement. The two-course meal is £18.95, whereas three-courses cost £21.95.
