Guests from charity Opening Doors, including a 101-year-old former model, enjoyed a vintage tea party at Harrogate’s charitable hub in Community House.

Flavours of the past, including retro-inspired cakes served on vintage china and music from the early twentieth-century, accompanied lively discussion as visitors shared their favourite memories.
