Spring Vintage Tea Day at Woodlands Retreat

A lovely day was had by all at our Spring Vintage Tea hosted by Woodlands Retreat on 28 September 2019.

The weather was perfect, the guests delightful, and prizes very much appreciated. Delicious food was creatively presented and in abundance.

So much fun was had by all that we can’t wait for next year when we plan to do it all again!

We hope to see lots of locals & visitors to Clarens at our Spring Vintage Tea next year!
