Lesley Elder, owner of Tea Amo, a family-run tea room, said she wanted to give something back to the community and offer something different to children during the Easter holidays.

“Children came to see Camilla with their autograph books,” she said. “We gave them bubbles to blow and made Disney-themed cakes, and Disney napkins, bunting and colouring pens.”

Lesley dressed up as Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, while her staff dressed up as Disney princesses, including Snow White and Alice from Alice in the Wonderland.

“It was a fabulous day, the children had a wonderful time and the staff really enjoyed it too,” she said. “We'll be doing it again.”
