Richmond Nantwich wins 1st Prize with Vintage Tearoom

1 August 2014

The Reception at Richmond Village Nantwich has recently
undergone an amazing transformation after two members of staff visited a
vintage tea shop on the Isle of Wight.

Residents and visitors are now greeted by the sights, sounds
and tastes of the World Wars in their own vintage tearoom, set up in the Village’s
Reception. Mayor of Nantwich, Christine Farrall together with Mr Phil Card of the
Nantwich branch of The Royal British Legion, officially opened the tearoom
which will stay open for the whole of August as part of the Village’s events to
mark the great British Spirit during the two World Wars.

Village Manager Lyne Griffin said “We are delighted that
Cllr Farrall was able to join us; we are very grateful for her support and we would
also like to thank Olwyn Payton from Sainsbury’s for the beautiful bouquet they

Village Advisor Nicola Tooke added “We would also like to
thank Phil Card from the Nantwich branch of the Royal British Legion which does
such fabulous work for both past and present servicemen and women. The tearoom is
already proving to be popular; indeed we attended the recent Nantwich Show and
set out our marquee as a vintage tearoom as well. After serving drinks and
homemade cake to over 300 people it was lovely to learn that we had won 1st
prize for the best small non-agricultural stand at the show”

Hospitality Manager Debbie Mercandelli went on to add “We
were so surprised and happy after all our hard work that we hugged the judges!”
