Tea with Henry VIII

West Kent WI's arranged a colourful afternoon for all its WI's
Eight of us went off to Hildenborough village hall on Monday 5th November to have "Tea with Henry VIII".  Tony Harris was dressed in costume and looked very impressive.  He trained at  'Henry School' Hampton Court Palace, where he worked for 2 years as a guide to visitors, all dressed the part as Henry.  His talk told us of Henry VIII's efforts to produce an heir and he then spoke about each of his 6 wives in turn and in great detail.

After the talk we had a delicious cream tea.  The drive there and back took us through some lovely Kent countryside and the weather was good.  No rain that day!.  It was a lovely afternoon.  A big thank you to the WI ladies who worked so hard to make sandwiches, cakes, scones and cups of tea for the 90 ladies that attended.
