Afternoon Tea WeekSometimes the wait for dinner is far too long, and lunch passed too many hours ago, and the length of the day is starting to wear at you.

When this happens, it’s time to settle in with a warm cup of tea and some light sandwiches, take some time to appreciate the day, and bolster yourself for the rest of the evening.

Afternoon Tea Week taps into the British Tradition of afternoon tea to help bring a bit of elegance and pomp to an otherwise unremarkable time of day.

History of Afternoon Tea Week

Afternoon Tea Week was established to help secure a tradition that has graced British afternoons since the 1840’s. In those days, dinner often wasn’t served until 8pm, and lunch wasn’t actually a thing, so what was a hungry person to do? Create a new mini-meal in the middle of the day of course! Traditionally this meal contains tiny finger sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, and sweet dainties like cakes and pastries to help lift the spirits, bolster energy, and see you through the rest of the day.

Tim spoke to volunteers from the Bloomin’ Friends volunteer group about how to help flowers thrive despite the hot conditions, for three live segments on the flagship BBC One breakfast show at 6.50am, 7.50am and 8.50am.

In one segment HCC's very own gardening "guru" - John Ely - was on hand to give advice on watering hanging baskets - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yt5fswuevjA&feature=youtu.be
