Bourne’s senior residents enjoy a Valentines tea party

Have your say

Senior citizens from Bourne braved some the cold winter weather on Wednesday to enjoy a Valentine’s afternoon tea party at Bourne Abbey church hall.

The afternoon was arranged by the Evergreen Care Trust and Dementia Support South Lincs.

Guests enjoyed a programme of musical entertainment throughout the afternoon played by the Bourne Grammar School string orchestra led by conductor Chris Rogers.

Pieces included a folk quintet entitled the Fairy Song, Bring Him Home from Les Miserables, played with emotional depth by the full orchestra, and solos pieces on violin, and cello.

Tea and coffee, sandwiches and cake were provided.
