CASA Social Club has started the autumn season (of five events) with two things new to the club – first, members had an art session which was much enjoyed, and now they have experimented with an English Afternoon Tea (with the addition of prosecco, of course) at Vale de Milho Golf Club in Carvoeiro.
The weather turned out to be perfect and members enjoyed an afternoon on the terrace with views of part of the golf course.
“The sandwiches were excellent – the cucumber ones naturally with the crusts removed – and went down very well with the Prosecco and endless pots of tea,” said CASA’s Norman Crocker.
Considerable discussion arose about the correct order to apply jam and cream to a scone, but no real consensus was reached.
“The delicious cakes, presented on lovely bone china tea stands, were likewise eagerly devoured, the vast supply of food being rapidly reduced to just a small handful of left-over sandwiches,” continued the CASA spokesperson.
“There was much laughter which seems to indicate a successful event and one of our American members was delighted and intrigued by their introduction to this fixture of traditional English fare. It seems likely that we will be repeating this next year! Many thanks to the friendly staff for their hard work and support.”
The next club event will be the traditional October Car Treasure Hunt and Lunch.
