Hugh Myddelton House in Southgate 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 Christopher Abrigo 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 a royal quiz, watching old clips of royal tours and occasions, learning facts about tea growing and production and a virtual visit to a tea factory.
Ramona Stanciu, General Manager at Hugh Myddelton House 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.”
Rosa, resident at Hugh Myddelton House 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.”
