Anyone for tea? We host community tea parties for awareness week

stack of tea cupsIt was a very English affair last week when we hosted a series of tea parties for our residents to highlight the benefits of nutrition and hydration.

The tea parties, held as part of Nutrition and Hydration Week 2014, took place at our community hubs and sheltered housing schemes across the borough.

Nutrition and hydration Week (17-23 March) is a joint initiative between NHS and hospital caterers to raise awareness and improve understanding of the importance of good nutrition and hydration in social and health care settings.

We invited residents to come along to one of the many tea parties we held across the town at the following community hubs; Edward Wilson Hub, St Paul’s Community Hub and Wallace House Community Hub.

Tea parties were also held at a number of our sheltered housing schemes including;  Robert Harvey House, Coopers Court, Gilbert Ward Court, Barlow Road, Cumming Court, Lynworth Court and Goldfoot House.

Guests tucked into some delicious mince pies kindly donated by local charity The Wiggly Worm and we also challenged each tea party to be the top tea drinkers – prizes were awarded to those tea parties who manage to sip their way through the most drinks.

The highlight of the week was the Worldwide Afternoon Tea on Wednesday, 19 March which illustrated how by making changes to eating and drinking habits, people can improve their quality of life.

An international event, activity for this awareness week took place as far afield as India and Canada.
