Tonbridge Rotary pensioners enjoy Country Drive and Cream Tea
by Andy Tong | 31st May 2019
TONBRIDGE Rotary Club held its annual outing for local pensioners with a picturesque drive through the countryside followed by afternoon tea at Hadlow Manor.
This event usually takes place at a different venue each year, but last year the hotel offered to be hosts.
It proved to be such a great success that the club was delighted when Hadlow Manor extended the invitation again.
Along with sandwiches, home-made cakes, scones and a birthday celebration, the 50-strong group was treated to live music by Mike Golding and his band in the Garden Room.
Giles Thomas, Operations Director of The Manor Collection hotel group, said: “We were delighted to get involved with such a worthy cause and treat the local pensioners to a delicious afternoon tea.
“It’s a great thing the Rotary Club does by getting those who may not see anyone for days on end out of the house for a change of scene and for a chance to mingle with other local residents, all whilst enjoying a cuppa and a scone.”
Sonia Williams, the club’s President, said: “The Rotary Club of Tonbridge enjoyed its annual Country Drive and Cream Tea for the elderly.
“We are grateful to the Rotarians, and special thanks to Hadlow Manor Hotel for the wonderful afternoon tea they so generously provided.”
