Residents swap fish and chips for a vintage afternoon tea party


Residents at Drewery Drive, the Society’s supported home in Wigmore, enjoyed a vintage afternoon tea party on Friday afternoon.

Instead of their usual Friday fish and chips, residents of the supported home were treated to a very special afternoon on 10th November, courtesy of housekeeper, Carol Driver and Julie Berry, the niece of a new resident at the home.


With the prettiest tablecloths in use and finest china laid out on the table, residents gathered together in the dining room, ready for their special afternoon tea, resident, Bob even dressed up in his finest suit for the occasion!

Residents didn’t miss their traditional chippy tea at all, as they were treated to finger sandwiches, followed by cheese and fruit scones and an array of delicious cakes, all washed down with several cups of tea of course. They chatted away with one another and enjoyed the nostalgic music, as they were waited on by Carol and Julie.


During the afternoon, resident, Bob Miles said: “I feel like I’m at the Savoy, it’s lovely and the tableware is just beautiful, I think the china might be the finest I’ve ever seen!”


Carol Driver, housekeeper at Drewery Drive commented: “Since joining the Society, I’ve made an effort to brighten up the home and make things a bit more interesting. We’ve introduced some lovely new meals with a lot of variety and new activities too, the residents really enjoyed the tea party, so we’re hoping to make it a monthly activity.”
