During her stop at Cressing The Mayor gave a live interview to Sadie Nine at BBC Essex talking about supporting local businesses and her love of a cream tea with a good cup of tea.
“We are so happy to that all of the 10 Tiptree Tea Rooms can now open for inside and outside dining. It was so good to see the customers enjoying an afternoon tea inside again at The Barns Tea Room without having to dodge the showers; and we really appreciate the support they have given us over the last few weeks when they have braved the weather to sit in the garden huddled in their coats enjoying a cooked breakfast,” said Aimee Smith, tea room marketing manager.
