Marlborough Express - The Saturday Express, Marlborough - - WHAT’S ON - EMILY HEYWARD

Drink tea and be merry.

That’s the plan for this week­end’s high tea event, or­gan­ised by Hospice Marl­bor­ough.

So if sip­ping from china cups and din­ing in your Sun­day best sounds like you, check out Sun­day’s Christmas-themed high tea at Pa¯taka,The Food­store.

Hospice vol­un­teer Beth Barnes, who is or­gan­is­ing the event, says this is the first year Hospice Marl­bor­ough has put on a high tea event. They are hop­ing all 50 tick­ets will sell.

The high tea will be pre­sented in three tiers with savouries and sweet treats by Pa¯taka, The Food­store be­tween 2pm and 3pm.

Four Christmas-themed classes will also run through­out the day to help peo­ple get ready for the fes­tive sea­son.

The classes in­volve dec­o­rat­ing Christmas cook­ies, Christmas tags, flo­ral de­sign and styling and will be run by var­i­ous busi­nesses in the com­mu­nity.

‘‘All the classes are set up so you can learn some­thing there and then take it home ... and make it on a larger scale,’’ Barnes said.

Classes are limited to 12 peo­ple and run through­out the af­ter­noon, with the flo­ral class start­ing at 1pm.

Sweet Cre­ations owner Melissa Rae is run­ning the cookie dec­o­rat­ing class at 1.30pm.

‘‘The class will in­volve show­ing peo­ple how to dec­o­rate gin­ger­bread cook­ies,’’ she said.

The styling class is at 3pm, with cre­at­ing Christmas tags at 3.30pm.

Tick­ets for the high tea event are on sale with about 20 spots re­main­ing.

Tick­ets can be bought at the Hospice Shop on Cleghorn St, Red­wood­town.
