More than fifty people were given red carpet treatment at a free tea party hosted by Kimberley Town Council.

As part of the ‘Caring for the community’ programme, a ‘Come and Join us Tea Party’ was held in the Parish Hall where tea and sweet treats were served by council members and their families.

Arts and crafts sessions, games and challenges kept the children occupied while the older visitors enjoyed music and conversation.

An exhibition of photographs taken at the recent Freedom Parade in the Town were proudly displayed on sale at just 15 pence each.

Close friends and oldest visitors Barbara Davies, 88, and Frances Clayton, 90, paid tribute to those who laid on the treat and said they had a wonderful time.

Mrs Clayton added: We have been treated like royalty and as well as the lovely tea we have been given sticks of Kimberley rock, fruit and sweet treats.

“The event has really lifted our spirits.”

The afternoon was co-ordinated by Kimberley Town Councillor Karen Tennant and backed by the council’s new Chairman David Nunn.

The next big community event will be a Pensioners Lunch in September. To book the event or to purchaseFreedom Parade photographs contact Coun Tennant on 07939463793.
