In recent years, afternoon tea has become the new decadence, being offered at a number of cafes and tea shops.
The Blackbird Café at Fleming Park’s Pavilion on the Park has come up with a great way to put our love of cake, sandwiches and tea (but mostly cake) to good use during lockdown: offering a takeaway afternoon tea to help fund a lunch club on wheels service for people who are isolated during the pandemic and might not otherwise get a hot meal.
Order online and the meal can either be collected from the café, or delivered to the Eastleigh area for a small additional charge. Different areas are served on different days (see image, above, or check the website for latest information).
We ordered ours last weekend, and it was scrumptious. A wonderful selection of fresh sandwiches, cake, scone with jam and clotted cream, and even tea bags. Gluten-free and vegan options are available.
Definitely gets the Chippy Seal of Approval
What a great way to raise money for a good cause. What better way to celebrate Father’s Day (hint to the teenagers)?
