Tea at the Ritz (almost!)

This event was held to inaugurate fund-raising for the church-lighting project, which the PCC had asked the friends to oversee.

Guests attending the “Ritz style” afternoon tea saw the Saints Function Room transformed into a most elegant venue. Embroidered table cloths, fine china and table decorations representing cup cakes - together with a welcoming glass of Pimms or soft drinks – added to the ambience.

Delicate sandwiches of egg, ham, cucumber, cheese and smoked salmon were followed by freshly baked scones, jam and cream, together with a selection of home-baked cakes and pastries, tea and coffee.

Tea party The Friends

While guests chattered happily they were entertained by Malcolm Wilkinson on his guitar.

Table service was provided by appropriately attired waiters and waitresses. All the food had ben prepared by the committee members and relatives.

All agreed this had been a thoroughly enjoyable and successful afternoon.
