A Mad Hatter's Tea Party at Gloucester Retirement Village

1st February, 2016

Residents from Brunel Court, Broadway Gardens, James Beattie House and The Rose Garden joined St Oswald's Village for a Mad Hatter's tea party.

All the residents and staff who attended got into the spirit of the occasion with their fantastic costumes and hand made hats.

Resident Phil Keast dressed as the Mad Hatter and admitted it was his first experience of having hair for 20 years.

The day began with cup cake decorating, face painting and an artist attended to draw the party goers... and they also took selfies of themselves!

Lunch followed and included cup cakes made by Kate Leach and Phil.

Entertainment was provided by the Tea for Two band and everyone got up to dance or joined in the singing.

The winners of the best hat, costumes and table centre pieces were Brunel Court, Broadway Gardens, James Beattie House, The Rose Garden and St Oswald's.

Activities Facilitator Chloe Robbins thanked all who attended and took part and reports: "The event proved a tremendous success and everyone said how much they had enjoyed it."
