Skelton and Brotton Parish Council held the first of their two annual Senior Citizens Afternoon Tea Parties on Tuesday 20 February 2018.
Once again the event was very well attended by local residents, with high tea catered by Julie Green, from Julie’s Bake ‘n’ Butty.
The Parish Council trialled a change to the usual format and were pleased to welcome members of the Cleveland Ukes to entertain guests, in between a couple of spells of music for dancing.
The Chairman asked for feedback on the new format. Everyone said they had really enjoyed the event and liked being able to sing along, or dance with the Ukulele Band’s songs as well as join in some of the more formal dancing.
£89.67 was collected in donations for the Chair’s Charities, Zoe’s Place and The Earthbeat Centre.
