This time last week, local businesses and residents gathered together to hold the Big Bramhall Tea Party, organised by I Love Bramhall.
The event was organised for senior citizens and has now been an annual occurrence for the last four years. Local Stockport businesses from the area sponsored the event, including Notcutts Garden Centre, based in Woodford, Cheshire Hearing Centres and Sas Daniels LLP.
I Love Bramhall founder, Wendy Green persuaded local businesses and residents to donate their resources and time for free to put on a spectacular tea party for all Bramhall’s Senior citizens. Wendy first had the idea four years ago to ‘celebrate the contribution of Bramhall’s older residents’. Described as purely a community celebration of their senior citizens, the event proved as popular as it has been previously, with a brilliant turn out at St Michael & All Angels Bramhall where the event was held.

There were over 300 guests in attendance, including the Mayor of Stockport, Linda Weekes Holt and her Consort, Ken Holt. Several businesses, community groups and individuals from the village offered both their time and support for the event.
The event was fully booked before taking place on the 7th of July, with an exciting line up of local talent entertaining guests. The event saw businesses offering their services and goodies, from free treatments from a holistic company, free transport from Chrome Motors and freebies from various companies.
Throughout the day Bramhall’s residents enjoyed raffles with prizes donated by local companies as well as food supplied by Piccolino Bramhall, The Country Fayre Deli and Unwins.
At 2PM the entertainment for the day started, with appearances from Bramhall High School, Absolute DJs and Fiona Watson’s Zubma Flash Mob.
“Everybody has got behind this, there are so many sponsors that have got involved, there are so many people that have given their time and their cash very freely to help support today. It has brought together a great group of people, it gets bigger and bigger and better and better every year.”
Brian Bagnall, Councillor for Bramhall South and Woodford shares his thoughts on the Big Bramhall Tea Party.
