Guernsey Government House

Time for Tea!



A series of Afternoon Tea parties have been held over the years where His Excellency and Lady Corder have invited Islanders celebrating their 100th Birthdays and their Big Wedding Anniversaries to Government House.

There were 6 couples celebrating a Diamond Anniversary (60 years), 1 with their Sapphire Anniversary (65 years) and two wonderful Islanders who have celebrated their 100th Birthdays. Mr Basil Metfalfe-Elgee who was born in November 1920 and Mrs Lily Le Blancq, who was born in February 1921.  Tea3

Sir Ian and Lady Corder joined their guests for tea and to hear their memories of wedded bliss and of Island Life. They also enjoyed some beautiful little cakes and pastries which were very kindly provided by the chef at Les Cotils at short notice.
