On Saturday 15th August 2020, we were joined by the singing group The Decadettes here at The Kings Arms, Portesham, to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day. The Weymouth based female vocal quartet with vintage harmonies serenaded guests while they enjoyed Afternoon tea in our Beer Garden. Manager Scott even managed to get a short clip of the ladies in action.
As it was #AfternoonTeaWeek from 10th August – 16th August, chef Wendy whipped up some afternoon tea treats specifically for the VJ Day celebrations. The afternoon tea cake stand included:
A selection of finger sandwiches, including classic cucumber sandwiches on brown bread
A selection of cakes, including chocolate brownies and lemon drizzle cake
Scone with local Dorset clotted cream and strawberry jam
Tea or Coffee
Although it drizzled slightly (this is a British summer after all!), a lovely afternoon was had by all that attended and we made sure that those who fought for our freedom will always be remembered.
We would like to thank the girls from The Decadettes for doing a splendid job of entertaining the troops, even staying on brand with their face masks! We hope to see you back again with us very soon!
