Tea cosies made by the ladies at Shorty O’Neil Village have been generously donated to an upcoming high-tea being hosted by the local Country Women’s Association. 

The Heritage Week event will comprise a fashion show of local wedding, bridesmaid and flower girls’ dresses from over the years, along with tea, scones, cakes and sandwiches.

There will also be entertainment and raffles as well as information about some of the historical dresses on display. 

The addition of the cosies was welcomed by the CWA’s Fran Whitelaw who thanked the Shorty O’Neil ladies. 

Ms Whitelaw said tickets would go on sale this Saturday from 9am to 1pm at Coles.

People may also call the CWA’s Danielle Kennedy and Pen Dennis on 0407 958 199 and 0428 884 369 respectively for tickets and to book a table.

Tickets cost $30 per person and the numbers are limited. 

The event will take place at the Civic Centre on Sunday, April 28 from 1pm to 5pm, and everyone is encouraged to wear their favourite hat and pearls.
