Suffolk homes and wellbeing centres celebrate the fifties with PG Tips tea dance

Home news

Care homes and wellbeing centres in Suffolk have been hosting 50s-themed tea dance parties using tea party packs provided by PG Tips.

Lehmann House in Wickham Market, Mills Meadow in Framlingham, Place Court in Haverhill, The Dell in Beccles and Stradbroke Court in Lowestoft were five of the participating care homes and wellbeing centres that hosted their own PG Tips tea dance events. Residents, wellbeing centre customers and their families and friends all joined in with the fun at the parties.

Each PG Tips party pack contained a selection of six different  traditional and fruit tea blends, accompanied by quizzes, competitions and other tea-tasting activities that everyone was encouraged to take part in. Each wellbeing centre baked a variety of cakes to accompany the delicious range of teas, and enjoyed listening and dancing to traditional 50s music.

Marie Reeve, manager at Lehmann House, said: “The tea dance party packs have been great fun. Everyone enjoyed picking their favourite tea and trying something new”.

Fran McBurnie, wellbeing centre manager at The Dell said: “A big thank-you to PG Tips for providing the party packs. Tea-tasting is an excellent sensory activity and the tea party was a lovely reminiscent occasion for all residents and wellbeing centre customers”.
