A BAKERY is set to have a pop-up afternoon tea later this month.

Penrhiwgyngi Farm Bakery will be treating guests to homemade cakes, scones and sandwiches, and a selection of hot savouries, all topped off with a cheese board to finish.

Owner Michelle Woolley said: “I find afternoon tea can be a little dull and very expensive for what you actually get on the plate, so we have packed our menu with freshly baked pastries, mini cakes and meringues, as well as the usual sandwiches and scones.

"We are finishing with cheese and biscuits to make sure everyone gets their money’s worth, and anything you don’t finish you can take home.

“Since we opened last year we have had nothing but praise and support from the people of Pontypool and this will be a fantastic opportunity to say thank you to our regular customers and hopefully meet some new faces.

“We will also be donating from the afternoon to the Guide Dogs for the Blind.”

Councillor Alan Jones, executive member for business, tourism, leisure and culture, said: “Michelle has worked really hard to bring this event together and it is fantastic to see another independent business using the indoor market as a venue for a foodie event.

“We have had a run of sold out events this year and I am sure that this will be just as popular.”

Tickets are £15 for food, teas and fresh brewed coffee, and can be bought directly from the bakery.

It will be taking place in Pontypool Indoor Market on Saturday, July 21 from 4.30pm.
