A Right Royal Brew – Local Care Home Enjoys Double Celebration

Magnolia Court Care Home in Golders Green marked the Queen’s 96th birthday on April 21st in style by brewing up a storm for National Tea Day and having an afternoon tea party.

Head chef Crischan Dumaquita whipped up a tasty selection of freshly-baked biscuits, pastries and cakes for the occasion, all washed down with a selection of different teas. Residents took part in royal and tea-themed sessions including writing cards to thank the Queen for her dedication and service. Tea tasting and learning facts about tea growing and production.

Octavian Stanciu, General Manager at Magnolia Court said:
“Our residents love nothing more than a good cuppa so they all really enjoyed the choice of different teas, cakes and events for National Tea Day, and, as a nation who truly loves their tea, it was great excuse for an afternoon brew and a natter. It was also a lovely way to say thank you to our longest reigning monarch.”

Ann White resident at Magnolia Court said:

“The Queen is an amazing lady who has given us so much, it was a wonderful way to remember her and pay our respects.”
Tammie Comey, Life Enrichment coordinator said, “As it was such a sunny day we held the tea party outside and enjoyed the garden. We made fruit tea flavoured lollies, it was fun guessing the flavours.”
