Immigrant Welcome Centre hosts tea party

In England, during the 1840s, afternoon tea was a common tradition amongst the wealthiest of classes.

The afternoon tea usually occurred as a snack meal around 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. This snack meal regularly consists of loose tea brewed in a traditional teapot with milk and sugar. It is accompanied with snacks such as small sandwiches, scones with jam, and other sweets and pastries.

The Comox Valley has a number of English residents that still practice such traditions in their households today.

On Feb. 19, the Immigrant Welcome Centre is hosting a traditional-style expatriate tea party, which starts at 4 p.m. and includes tea and snacks, as well as, a great discussion among fantastic people. This is a great way to socialize with other people in your community while relaxing and sipping a cup of tea.

So whether you are an expat from the U.K., USA, or any other nation, you're invited.

As seating is limited, please RSVP by calling marketing and public relations co-ordinator Hassan Raza at 250-338-6359 or e-mail hassanraza03@gmail.com.
The Immigrant Welcome Centre serves the Comox Valley, Campbell River and North Island. They provide services to immigrants to help them integrate and settle into Canada. Over 600 clients have been served in the past year as immigration continues to bring innovative and skilled newcomers to the community.
