Afternoon Tea on the Thames 8 JULY 2023

All News, Events, League, People

Over a hundred members of the League and their guests enjoyed a luxury tea aboard the paddle steamer Elizabethan. Departing from Blackfriars pier for a three hour trip. This was the final tea in the 900th. celebrations held by the League. World wide over 900 Barts nurses have gathered in locations ranging from back gardens to stately homes and various venues in between. (very fitting in Barts 900th.year!)

The League has received overwhelming support for these events. Since the tea yesterday our Facebook site and members of the executive committee have been inundated  with thanks. To cap it all Tower Bridge opened for us as we headed back to Blackfriars Pier ( The Thames barge “Will” was just behind us!)

It was great to see some members who are not often able to attend League events joining us this year.

There is more to come! Next year the League is 125 years old so keep an eye out for more interesting events.

Videographer Mark joined us yesterday and filmed as we went along. He is producing a video, a link to which will be uploaded to the website in the near future. Video clips from various teas and events held throughout the year will feature and provide a lasting archive.
