Communi-tea parties

TEA parties will be held in Clevedon and Portishead as part of efforts to tackle loneliness in older people.

As part of Communi-tea Week, Bupa care homes in the two towns will host social events.

Elm View Nursing Home in Moor Lane, Clevedon, will hold a tea party at 2.30pm on Tuesday. Norewood Lodge Nursing Home in Nore Road, Portishead, will hold a tea party at 2.30pm on March 20.

During the week, Bupa has also teamed up with Tetley Tea and is inviting people to knit or design a special tea cosy. The winner will receive a year’s supply of tea and their design will also be available to buy as a knitting pattern, with 10 per cent of proceeds to go to Age UK.

Anyone wanting to attend an event or enter the competition should call 0845 600 4622 or visit
