Friday 20th March saw us running our annual Pensioners' Party at St Thomas' Church Hall in Hanwell. We entertained 70+ older residents of Hanwell and Northfields and the environs. During the 3 hour party our guests were accompanied as they sang well known songs of the 1940s and 50s, played Bingo, pass the parcel, various raffles and a musical quiz. They really enjoyed a 'slap up' tea of homemade sandwiches and cakes including two beautiful rich fruit cakes (made by one of our male members) and washed down with gallons of tea. Towards the end of the afternoon / evening our guests enjoyed a little alcoholic beverage to suit their palates! The time flew by and judging by the many e-mails, cards and messages, we have received, everyone seemed to have enjoyed themselves and have asked if they can come again next year!
Thanks to the partners who helped by making and serving the food, our members and friends for providing transport to and from the party and helping at the party and to Barclays, Waitrose West Ealing and Tesco Perivale without whose support we could not have arranged the party. Thank you all.
