Afternoon Tea with Uttoxeter Gateway Club

Afternoon Tea with Uttoxeter Gateway Club

We thought it would be a great idea to host an Afternoon Tea.

Our members could help make cakes, savouries and sandwiches, set the room and the tables and then help serve all their families, friends and guests.

The Event was held at the Heath Community Centre on Sunday March 15th, with our members meeting at 10.00 sharp. It took us 10 minutes to unload cars!! We all washed our hands and started work.

The kitchen staff boiled eggs, buttered bread, whipped cream, cooked sausage rolls, put the jackets potatoes in the oven for our lunches, grated cheese, spread jam and cream on scones, cut tray bakes, and much more.

The front of house staff set out tables according to my sweated over table plan, spread table cloths, matched 50 cups, saucers and plates, arranged flowers, reserved tables, put the raffle prizes out and then we had lunch!!

As 2pm came nearer, we washed our hands, put on our new black aprons and welcomed our guests, then the table plan went out of the window!!.

The kitchen crew filled tea pots, arranged cakes, savouries and sandwiches on beautiful cake stands and the room filled with our friends and families.

We made sure our guests had oceans of tea, we chatted and laughed, we sold raffle tickets, flower troughs and bird boxes and had a lovely afternoon.

Thank you to everybody who was involved in any way and to our guests for coming and being so generous.

Due to the current situation with the Covid-19 virus, the Uttoxeter Gateway Club has now been suspended, our day trip postponed and the holiday cancelled,

Please keep well and safe

See you all as soon as we can
