Derbyshire farm shop
Croots is celebrating Afternoon Tea Week by launching something special for
children, which will have them grinning like a Cheshire cat.
The farm shop near
Duffield is offering Mad Hatter’s tea party-themed afternoon teas for
youngsters and will be donating £1 from each tea purchased to its adopted
charity, Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre.
During Afternoon Tea
Week, which runs from 8th to 14th August, Croots has an
offer on its adult teas – two for £20. On Wednesday 10th August it
will offer special teas for children from 3pm which are themed around the
famous Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter’s
tea party.
The children’s teas,
which will also be available on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th
August, and on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the rest of August to
coincide with the children’s craft activities being run at Croots, feature a
tasty range of ‘eat me’ and ‘drink me’ items.
Youngsters are being
invited to take along their favourite teddy or doll and enjoy a cream tea in a
special area of Shires Eatery at Croots which is being decorated with an Alice in Wonderland theme.
“As it’s Afternoon Tea
Week, we thought it would be great fun to do something special for the children
and at the same time raise some money for Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre,
which provides holidays for local youngsters who are going through tough
times,” said Kay Croot, who runs Croots Farm Shop at Farnah House Farm,
Wirksworth Road, with husband Steve.
“The Mad Hatter’s tea
party-themed afternoon teas will begin on Wednesday 10th August during
Afternoon Tea Week but we’ll carry on serving them Mondays to Wednesdays for
the rest of August to coincide with the children’s craft activities that we’ve
got planned. We imagine that our younger visitors will take part in the craft
activities, have a bit of a play in our play area and will be keen to tuck into
the delicious afternoon teas that our team in Shires Eatery have created.”
The children’s
afternoon tea features a selection of sandwiches, crudités, fruit kebabs dipped
in chocolate, ice cream cupcakes, Bakewell tart, lemon sponge and milkshake. For
each £10.95 tea sold, £1 will be donated to the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday
Centre charity.
Croots Farm Shop is
open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm (Shires Eatery until 4.30pm) and from
10am to 4pm on Sundays. Croots runs Fresh Fish Thursdays between 9am and 1pm on
