RESIDENTS at a Uttoxeter care home have been transported back in time while enjoying an afternoon tea and a 1940s jazz singer.
Eversley Rest Home, in Bramshall Road, was visited by special guests from the Vintage Tea Emporium to offer the residents some afternoon tea including strawberries and cream, muffins and scones to tie in with Wimbledon.
While they enjoyed the tasty delicacies, they were also treated to the musical jazz sounds of popular Uttoxeter singer Maisey Hepburn to keep them entertained.
Margaret Tortoiseshell, senior carer and activities co-ordinator, said it was a very popular day with all of the residents who attended.
She told the Advertiser: “We decided to do an afternoon tea with it being Wimbledon and it feel in nice for them.
“They absolutely loved it really and it gives them a little boost as they can sing along to the songs and reminisce about their youth.
“It is the first time we have done this and the Vintage Tea Emporium did it as a free taster session which was really nice of them.
“We are definitely planning to have them up again.
“I would like to say a big thank you from the residents and staff to the Vintage Tea Emporium and Maisey Hepburn for a lovely afternoon.”
The carer added that the home regularly puts on activity days for the residents to enjoy and they will be hoping for some summer sun at the weekend as they prepare to hold a summer fair on Saturday.
