Happy 30th Birthday to Watford Museum

Colourful bunting hung from walls as more than 200 people celebrated at Watford Museum's 30th Birthday Tea Party.

Students from West Herts College Catering Department served teas and made the cakes that were decorated by the College's Cake Decorating class. Each cupcake represented a different aspect of the museum. Particular thanks to Andy Wakeford and Jean Ballentyne of West Herts College and their students for an incredible job!

The museum was transformed into a tea room with decorations and dresses for the museum staff provided by Julie O'Keeffe and Christine Clifford from The Joy of Vintage. Crockery for the tea party was also provided by Beechen Grove Baptist Church.

Councillor Lindsey Scudder, the vice-chairman of Watford Borough Council, said: "It's wonderful. We should really be proud of having something like this in our small town. "They do the most amazing things. It's terrific. This is a really lovely community event."

Sarah Priestley, Heritage Officer at Watford Museum, said: "All the people invited have been part of what we do year in, year out. So many of the groups are all here - local charities, organisations and Friends Of the museum. It's a real team effort. The staff and volunteers have all worked really hard."
