Central Hawke's Bay and Southern Hawke's Bay Federation members celebrated Founders Day by getting dressed up
in their finest (including head attire) and having a high tea at Oruawharo Homestead
A couple of ladies getting into the swing of things 😁
Off for a tour around the homestead. Oruawharo was in a very neglected state when the current owners took over,
and is painstakingly and faithfully being restored to its former grandeur
Then off across the lawn to Vincent's - formerly a church built by the original owners of Oruawharo - for the high tea
The most beautiful bone china was used...
... with a plethora of choices for tea!
The food was delicious 😋
We were treated to a presentation on the history of Orauwharo Homestead and St Vincent's Church
and sent on our way home by a rainbow!
