Afternoon Tea

Want to learn something new in an hour? Afternoon Tea is an invitation for all to come to the Barking Shop to socialise over tea and cake. Each week’s session is themed around a skills-sharing activity -- such as sewing, knitting, etc. -- which will be led by a resident. We encourage you to take advantage of the equipment we have available. It’s a great chance to enjoy a warm, inviting environment in the chilly autumn months.
