A Message from The Tea House

It is with great sadness that I write to tell you that on the evening of Monday 6th September, our company suffered a devastating loss.

My sister, Katharine Singleton-Smith died in a road accident.

As you know she was the key person in our business and her hard work ethic, positivity and leadership will be greatly missed.

Katharine and I became directors when we purchased the majority of the business from our aunt Christina in 2010. I have not been actively involved in the business, but with the help of our fantastic team, will strive to nurture and grow the business as Katharine would have wished.

We ask for your understanding as we try to come to terms with what has happened, get our bearings and take on new responsibilities.

Alex Smith
