POLEGATE’S retired residents enjoyed the 1952 themed tea party hosted by the town’s mayor.

Mayor of Polegate Cllr Malcolm Cunningham raised £143.61 for Children With Cancer Fund, one of his nominated charities for the year.

Guests were taken back in time with music from the era accompanied by tea, sandwiches, jelly and ice cream and blancmange.

The mayor entertained the guests with a quiz, pass the parcel and tombola.

The hall was decorated in a street party theme with bunting and photographic memorabilia from 60 years ago.
