Cllr Rob Waltham, cabinet member for Business, Innovation, Employment and Skills, said:

“With Christmas just around the corner, there isn’t a better time to sit down and relax with your friends and family at one or more of the many tearooms on the Teapot Trail. If you can’t treat yourself to some cake at Christmas, when can you?

“There are some real hidden gems across North Lincolnshire that I would highly recommend. The Teapot Trail gives those tearooms that are less well-known the chance to stand out and showcase what they have to offer.

“Don’t miss the opportunity to pick your favourite cake from the 17 tearooms on the trail. You could be in with a chance of winning tea for two at the winning tearoom. You only have until New Year’s Eve, so hurry.

“Pick up your Teapot Trail leaflet today and plan your route for discovering North Lincolnshire’s tearooms.”
