Even a shower or two amongst the sunshine could not dampen the spirits of the many families and groups that celebrated Mother’s Day with a High Tea on the verandah of the house.
Once again this special event was fully booked and many more additional visitors were able to enjoy a Devonshire Tea in the marquee. It was wonderful to see the children playing on the lawn of the house, while the adults enjoyed a relaxing afternoon tea.
Young volunteer Jessica Stroja entertained guests with her lovely piano playing, and our volunteer photographer Lynette Rees took portraits of guests. The Australian Lace Making Guild has a fascinating display of lace and gave demonstrations of lace making.
