Time for tea

Afternoon tea is an important milestone here at The Chiswick. It is served to residents every day but for one group on our Windsor Suite, it has taken on a special significance.

At 2.30 pm, every Friday, the china and cakes are laid out and the tea (or coffee) poured for what has been dubbed ‘Ladies’ Afternoon Tea’. While some ‘Windsorites’ head off to the Buckingham Suite to join the crossword group, the stalwarts who remain settle down for a catch-up, chat, reminiscence and to cement their friendships – all over a good old-fashioned tea, the way it used to be.

Maintaining social interaction in this way is highly beneficial for all-round health so long may the tradition continue.
