1949: What’s Trinity tea?



Trinity Tea 1949 style visualised using AI by Bing Image Creator

There is an interesting custom still observed at Holy Trinity Church, Cuckfeld, of having a parochial tea, known as a 'Trinity Tea,' for parochial workers. According to the Vicar, this custom is said to have derived from the time when church and town   were closely linked together in the 'daily round and common task’ and  the jollity and feasting of the annual Cuckfield Fair naturally had its rellgious aspect with a service in church and probably the ringing of the church bells.
