Happy Christmas

We are now closed and want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and festive break.  Hoping you all take time to eat, drink and be merry, can we ask you to share your goodwill and good fortune to those less fortunate than yourselves, everyone has an elderly person nearby, that lives on their own and would be so glad to have someone visit, even if only to ask if they are alright and need anything.

When we had the heavy snowfall around four years ago, everyone couldn’t get to work, so had to stay at home; there was a sense of neighbourly caring, that harked back to the forties and fifties era, which was beautiful.  Lots of people began to speak to neighbours along the street, they hadn’t had the time to do before.  Christmas is all about caring and thinking of others. If you want to get involved we love this

Get involved

Everyone can get involved in the Spread the Warmth campaign this winter.

If you know of an older people person feeling lonely, call our advice line for free on 0800 169 65 65 to see how we can help. You can also help lonely older people by volunteering at your local Age UK to help provide a range of vital services – from befriending to lunch clubs and day centre activities.

Helena Herklots, Services Director at Age UK, commented: ‘Christmas is a time for giving and sharing love and friendship. By popping in to check on an older neighbour we know and by making time for older relatives we can all help to make sure that everyone has a happy and warm Christmas.

‘No one should be lonely at Christmas.’

With thanks to AgeUK for this

Secret Tea Party


Have you heard about underground supper clubs and secret parties?  Well, we started doing these in 2010 all over Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire even as far north as Lancashire.  We have taken our Afternoon tea catering all over and have had loads of fun creating special events for lots of lovely people.

Here are a few photographs of earlier parties it wasn’t just the catering we did but we dressed the venues too.  Village halls, chapels, barns, holiday cottages and church halls.

As an established crafts person, I sewed over thirty lengths (500 meters) of bunting that draped the ceilings and look fabulous. With over 200 place settings of vintage china, pretty tablecloths, silver cutlery that I collected over two years, before setting up Vintage Rose Catering in 2010 I have been able to execute huge weddings and events.

Now after opening our Tearoom back in 2014, we can now offer our outside catering once again as we are inundated with requests by old customers and new.

See our feature in the book Secret Tea Party by Kerstin Rodgers ISBN 978-0-224-09875-5
