Dozens took in the fifth annual Oak Bay News Afternoon Readers’ Tea, which took place at the Carlton House this year.

It was a chance for the community to meet and greet with Oak Bay News team of publisher Janet Gairdner, Greater Victoria bureau chief Katie Enqvist, Oak Bay News sales associate Jenny Boulet and reporter Travis Paterson.

The warm tea and fresh treats were perfect on a rainy, and windy late summer afternoon.

The Oak Bay Couns. Eric Zhelka, Esther Paterson and Hazel Braithwaite attended with Oak Bay Fire Chief Darren Hughes, Oak Bay Police Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties and Oak Bay Archivist Caroline Duncan, as well as others from the District of Oak Bay.

The Oak Bay News is grateful to the staff of the Carlton House for hosting the event.
