Over 90s Tea

It was a great pleasure to receive the Over Nineties on 28 June. The party was organised by the Pastoral Groups and “VIP” guests and their companions enjoyed the afternoon tea: homemade tasty sandwiches and various cakes were shared for this social event.

Angela Bevan offered the prayer of thanksgiving.

Everybody had a great time and it was nice to see the Over Nineties smiling and sharing their memories. Is that the secret of reaching over the age of 90?

May we thank everybody who helped us make this event as successful as in previous years and we are looking forward to the next event in 2016.
