Orkney Friends of Palestine vintage afternoon tea

By Nick Morrison

The vintage afternoon tea was exactly that . There was a nicely laid out table with fresh daffodils and pussy willow for decoration . We started with home-made raisin scones butter and home-made blackberry jam . Our teacups were never empty such was the frequency of the circulation of the teapots . Then there were absolutely gorgeous tray bakes which should’ve had a government waistline warning attached to them .

As you went in there was a simple table with Palestinian products on it , like ceramics , olive oil and dates .

It really was a delightful way to spend an afternoon .
