The sun shone and there was plenty of family fun when the Scalford-based Old Brickyard Tea Garden hosted a special Mad Hatter’s Tea Party on Easter Monday.

Children had their faces painted and dressed up in fancy dress, with striking costumes such as the Mad Hatter and the white Easter bunny.

They were able to escape to a secret enchanted garden which included sock trees, Easter eggs, and a cake cottage.

Staff from a local willow weaving centre brought along animal sculptures for visitors to enjoy craft demonstrations and there was also competitions involving drawing and croquet.

As befitting a tea party, there were also hot brews and Easter-themed cakes to enjoy.

Anna Stasinska, owner of the tea room, said: “The lovely weather certainly brought out the crowds and we were delighted with just how many people turned up. The Easter entertainment was enjoyed by all and everyone had a great time.”
