Telling stories at Morning tea

"I've been telling people about the morning tea and that we were sharing some stories.  It was a wonderful part of our lives that we like to go back to." Mavis Cooper

During 2015, we held a series of three morning teas with former FJ employees, inviting them to bring along a photograph or object that told a story about why Fletcher Jones, the man or Fletcher Jones, the business was special.  A lot of the material on this website was generously shared at these morning teas.

At each of the morning teas, we gave people a fruit bun especially baked from a local bakery in a specially printed bag to echo the Balfours Bun story shared by Tim Carlton. http://www.fjstories.org.au/balfour-buns-and-£1-note
