STAFF at a country hall have practised being thrifty ahead of a 1940s event – and have saved their ration coupons for an afternoon tea.
Kiplin Hall, between Scorton and Northallerton, will host the event to raise money for the hall on Saturday, September 21 at 3pm.
Guests at the afternoon tea will be served by parlour maids, enjoy music from the period by Malcolm and Carole Brown, and Pauline Hustwick will give a talk about life at home during the Second World War.
Guests are invited to attend in fancy dress, and there will be a prize for the best outfit.
This is a fund-raising event organised by the Friends of Kiplin Hall. Tickets cost £12.50, or £11.50 for friends and volunteers. Kiplin Hall is on the B6271 Scorton to Northallerton road, about five miles east of the A1.
To book a place for afternoon tea or for more information contact curator Dawn Webster, or Marcia McLuckie, administrator, on 01748-818178, or visit www.kiplinhall.co.uk.
