Chester Court, in Bedlington, held an afternoon tea party to mark the Queen’s 95th birthday as well as National Tea Day.

Head chef Dawn whipped up a tasty selection of freshly-baked scones, cakes, sandwiches and nibbles for the occasion, all washed down with a cup of tea or glass of wine.

Residents also took part in crown crafts and watched a virtual tour of Windsor Castle.

Sarah, General Manager at Chester Court, said: “Our residents love nothing more than a good cuppa, they all really enjoyed the afternoon tea. It was also a lovely way to say thank you to our longest reigning monarch.”

Gloria, a resident at Chester Court said: “The Queen is an amazing lady who has been through so much lately so it was a wonderful way to pay our respects.”
