Jill, Alan and Hamish have received a message/invitation from Carshalton Methodist Church:
Carshalton’s Ritz on the Park – Join us for a wonderful afternoon tea with live music
Everything stops for tea at Carshalton Methodist Church, Ruskin Road on Saturday 7th September 4.00pm – 6.00pm
Full afternoon tea with live string quartet and two pianists. Tickets priced at £15.00 per person
Despite these times of national austerity, have you noticed the growing popularity of the English afternoon tea? An array of interesting sandwiches plus scones and cream with naughty but nice cakes accompanied by speciality teas or coffee is quite definitely on its way back. What makes it so special is the quality of service with fine quality linen table cloths, bone china tea pots and plates and traditional music to create the ambience of an occasion that is essentially English. London’s Ritz Hotel offers a lovely top end setting with five sittings a day and a pianist for celebrating those special events – prices start at £45 per person. London riverboats offer afternoon tea with an hour and a quarter cruise with a single pianist starting at £29.50.
On Saturday 7th September Carshalton Methodist Church brings the Ritz to Carshalton with a special afternoon tea marking the end of the summer break. A lovely full afternoon tea is being prepared by Helen Deards for whom such speciality catering is a long held interest. Helen has run very successful afternoon teas for us on a number of occasions including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations with the Thames River Pageant showing on our community cinema screen. Live entertainment will be provided by two pianists AND a string quartet. Tickets priced at £15.00 per person are now on sale from our Church Office open Monday to Friday 9.00am – 12.30pm – telephone 020 8669 3676.
We invite you to bring along those people who are special to you and enjoy a most memorable end of summer afternoon. This is a fund raising event which will help our church continue its work in the community.

Community Cinema is on holiday
Following a summer break, our popular community cinema will be back with an autumn film programme on Saturday 28th September. Our opening movie, Quartet, follows the musical theme of Everything stops for Tea with a lovely story about mini politics in a residential home for retired musicians. See our community cinema page on the church web site for more details – http://www.carshalton-methodist.org.uk/cinema-on-your-doorstep/
Wishing you a wonderful summer
