St John’s Winchester are pleased to announce a Vintage Tea Party for our almshouse residents was held on Monday 3rd June in our Community Room on Colebrook Street. The party ran between 2pm – 4pm, and guests were asked to come in an outfit from their favourite vintage era.
Guests were treated to a sumptuous afternoon tea of miniature Victoria sponge cakes, freshly baked scones, tasty sandwiches, sausage rolls and other delights.
To accompany the sweet and savoury treats, coffee and a selection of teas were served. Staff, volunteers and residents dressed up in clothing from their favourite eras or in their best vintage-inspired garments. Her Majesty the Queen even made an appearance!
The event was topped off by a quiz, which spanned from the 20s all the way up to the Noughties.
