By 31st July, 2018 Press Releases No Comments

A MAD Hatters Tea Party was held to celebrate World Friendship Day at a Blyth care home.

Residents at The Oaks Care Home, on Durban Street, enjoyed a cuppa and a cake served by staff and relatives dressed as characters from Alice in Wonderland.

Alice was 7-year-old Faith Husband, daughter of car assistant Sabrina Yates, and the Mad Hatter was 10-year-old Chloe Hedley, daughter of the home’s activities coordinator Angela Hedley.

Angela, who was dressed as the Queen of Hearts, said: “The residents really enjoyed the tea party and the girls were brilliant as Alice and the Mad Hatter.”

Resident Elsie Patterson said: “Congratulations – the table is beautiful and the costumes are lovely. Your daughters are gorgeous.”

Ann Mielnik, home manager at The Oaks Care Home, said: “We wanted to do something special for World Friendship Day and Angela came up with the idea of a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

“Everyone took a trip down the rabbit hole together and had a wonderful time.”
