A VINTAGE tea party helped welcome in a change of name for a café based at a town visitor attraction.

Sally-Ann Harris has been given the franchise to run the café at Forge Mill Needle Museum which has been renamed Abbey Meadows Café.

It officially opens on Mother’s Day Weekend (tomorrow and Sunday) but as a treat for staff and volunteers at the Needle Mill Lane museum were served a selection of savoury and sweet homemade treats from tiered cake stands and tea from mismatched china crockery.

Gillian Crawley, the museum’s manager, said: “We have tasted her cake and have already declared it to be the best in Redditch, it’s so good she could easily win the Great British Bake Off.”
