Celebrate Morley Afternoon Tea

What a great weekend for Morley.  I celebrating the town’s cultural successes with a traditional afternoon tea, with a special Yorkshire twist for local residents.

This weekend our town was full of great things going on.

The Morley Literature Festival culminates this weekend with some great authors, including Kate Adie, Andy Kershaw and Ned Boulting all coming to the town. Jenny Harris, the festival director joined us for tea and to share with residents some of the exciting events coming up.  

And if you haven’t seen it yet, the amazing Morley Heritage Centre opened its doors recently, just across the road from my office on Albion Street. It’s a treasure trove of local history and the mastermind behind it, local historian, Peter Aldred joined us to for tea and told us some amazing stories about the original ‘tenterhooks’ and ‘penny lick glasses’.

Finally, all the way down Queen Street Morley was treated to a food festival with market stalls and lots of culinary treats. I made my own contribution with my homemade sticky rhubarb muffins and tarts this afternoon.

Thanks to everyone who came along to celebrate Morley with me.
