The Secret Tea Society was founded by Claire in 2013 following her success in resurrecting the local WI in her village. She enjoyed the support and network that this group provided from all walks of life and the opportunities that they were able to create for each other, but she wanted to create something that was not bound by certain regulations of a society that had been in place for over 120 years. Once referred to by her local newspaper of 'more gin and jam, and less Jerusalem', Claire was determined to find a way to bring a gathering of like minded ladies together in a more modern setting whether online or through physical meet ups. The Secret Tea Society was therefore borne out of a passion to support women, to empower them and enable them to work together to achieve the best for each other, preferably over a lovely cup of tea!
Over the years we have taken tea in a treehouse, tumbled down a rabbit hole for afternoon tea with the Mad Hatter, taken tea at the Dowager's residence and picked flowers from the farm followed by tea and cake, to name but a few. Together we have grown, made friends, connections but most importantly, enjoyed ourselves and made lasting memories. If you want to be part of the next chapter, sign up to find out more.
