Merchiston High Tea (Christchurch)

My family have a 130 year old villa called Merchiston (many of you who know me personally will have visited), which inevitably has maintenance needs - and currently there are a couple of big projects in the pipeline. We are all keen bakers (well, my immediate female relatives and I are), and the house is an ideal setting for a lovely afternoon tea - so to fundraise for impending work we will be hosting a High Tea on the weekend of the 3-4 July.

It will be $20 per person, and will include a tour and some history of the house. This will be followed by a luxury sit-down afternoon tea, during which we will offer all sorts of treats - all baked by our humble selves - served in style on beautiful old china.

At this stage we have two sittings planned - at 2.30pm on both Saturday and Sunday, with the potential for an earlier sitting on Saturday depending on demand. If you are interested in booking your space (or have any questions), email me - And if you can't make it - well, you might see some recipes sometime soon. ;-)
