Neighbours of a Blyth academy enjoyed an afternoon of nibbles and nostalgia as students served up a tea-time treat.
More than 50 members of the local community attended the tea party at Bede Academy, where they were treated to a selection of sandwiches, vol-au-vents and cakes, and they had a sing-along with two of the academy’s choirs.
Bede Academy vice-principal Steve Nelson, who welcomed the guests, said: “It has become a regular event for us to invite all of the local residents to the academy to enjoy a cup of tea with our students.
“It gives people living nearby a chance to see what goes on at Bede and to talk to our young people as they are served their sandwiches and tea.”
Guests were entertained by music teacher Bartholomew Dobson on piano and head of music Helen Kerr, who conducted the Junior Academy Choir and the Cantata Choir, singing numbers including the Chattanooga Choo Choo and tunes from Les Miserables.
