Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th Birthday
Afternoon Tea Party
At Savill Gardens
year the Bracknell Forest U3A outing was to Savill Gardens in
celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday with an afternoon
Tea Party. We travelled by coach from Bracknell Bus Station
a second pick-up in Ascot High Street. We reached Savill
at 2pm in beautiful sunshine, which stayed for our stroll around the
gardens, taking in the Queen Elizabeth Temperate House which she opened
in 1995. This glasshouse showcases examples of rare and
plants, and the splendid Rose Garden opened by Her Majesty the Queen in
June 2010. The Garden houses over 2,800 roses.
an hour and a half of strolling around the grounds we made our way to
‘The Lawns’ and our own private Marquee for Afternoon Tea.
full afternoon tea was served on fine bone china with a selection of
fine finger sandwiches with 4 different fillings, Macaroons, Rose
scented shortbread biscuits, homemade scones with raspberry jam and
clotted cream and Victoria sandwich
Accompanied by unlimited freshly brewed filter coffee or English
After the Tea Party our members had time
to wander around the shop before departing on the homeward
journey. This was a most unusual, event enjoyed us all.
