November 13, 2015

The Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, Councillor Thomas Beckett has hailed the Ladies Vintage Tea evening, in aid of the Mayoral Charity, the Mary Peters Trust, as a great success.
The Mary Peters Trust supports young athletes across Northern Ireland providing much needed funds and support in their chosen sport.
Held at Café Vic-Ryn, ladies were treated to a fabulous array of fashion and beauty demonstrations, including a mini fashion show by local clothing business, Julie Elliott, from House of Vic-Ryn.
Beauty Boutique, also based in House of Vic-Ryn, was on hand to provide expert knowledge on beauty regimens and treatments and Pamela Forest, from Rhubarb Boutique, demonstrated the perfect way to tie a scarf in the most simple and trendy way.
Guests also had the opportunity to purchase the perfect Christmas gift at one of the many stalls on display, which featured well-known and uniquely versatile fashion jewellery, Miglio, Menarys Gifts Sets and Trinity Gifts. Hayley Mitchell from Fascinating Designs exhibited an extensive range of bespoke fascinators, while those wishing to brush up on their cookery skills were able to select from a range of cookery books.
Speaking about the event, the Mayor, Councillor Thomas Beckett, said: ‘I was absolutely delighted to see so many people at the vintage tea evening, supporting a great charity.
“This was most definitely the perfect ladies night out and a chance for friends and family to come together for a fun evening of fashion and pampering. I would like to thank everyone who came and I hope you all had a fantastic time.
“My sincere thanks goes to Café Vic-Ryn for hosting the evening and also to all the exhibitors and local businesses for taking the time to come along to support this event – it was tremendous success.”
Guests also enjoyed a delicious supper by Café Vic-Ryn while listening to modern sounds of brass band, Dynamic Brass.
