Spring tea party
After recent Old Buckenham Women’s Institute’s annual garden parties had been held in less than pleasant weather, the WI decided to break with tradition and invite villagers to a Spring Tea party instead. It was held indoors at the Church Rooms so the weather outside was quite good!
There were stalls and games with the refreshments consisting of neat little sandwiches (with the crusts cut off) and a wide selection of homemade cakes. The competition for the best dressed Easter Bonnet attracted some very colourful entries with the winner being made and worn by Nancy Hunt.
In the other competitions, John Frost was best at leaf identification with Olive Shickle and friends showing that they knew most about royalty.
With around fifty people taking part this was a most enjoyable event which also raised useful funds for the WI.
