The event featured vintage singers, stalls selling clothing and jewellery, and cakes and other refreshments.

Owner Gemma Peers said: “It was a great night. Thank you to everybody who came. I think we are going to do another one later in the year.”

The tea party was organised to raise funds for Overgate in memory of salon staff member Jane Cole’s dad, who was cared for at the hospice in his later years.
