Newstone House created its very own wonderland when it hosted a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
Staff at the Sturminster Newton home dressed as characters from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for the fun afternoon.
Home Manager Sohail Daniel led from the front as the Mad Hatter, while other team members came in a variety of guises, including the Cheshire Cat, March Hare, White Rabbit, Queen of Hearts and, of course, Alice.
Residents, families and guests from the community, including Sturminster Newton Mayor Cllr Andrew Donaldson, enjoyed performances from local singer Christina Jeavons as well as games, including croquet and ‘hook a duck’.
Meanwhile Newstone House’s chefs laid on a lavish tea, including traditional favourites such as scones, jam and cream and a selection of mouth-watering cakes.
