Mr Henry Usborne, MP for Yardley, wanted to do something for the employees of Nu-Way Heating Plants Ltd (Droitwich), of which he is Chairman; so on Sunday he invited them to a strawberry tea in the grounds of his home, Totterdown House, Aldington.

Coaches brought employees and their families from Droitwich.  Many others arrived in their cars.

To amuse them there were pony rides, swings, a treasure hunt for the children, lawn tennis, skittles and archery.

Tea was served by Mrs Usborne in the orchard, which has an excellent view over the Avon.
