Senior Citizen's Christmas Tea Party December 2021

For 68 years seniors living in Witham have come to a tea party given by the Rotary Club of Witham. Unfortunately we had to cancel the Party for 2020 and 2021because of the covid-19 but hope for some similar event in 2022.


It has been a tradition, for 68 years, that the Rotary Club of Witham invited seniors from the town to a tea party a few days before Christmas.  Besides tea, sandwiches, rolls, cake and mince pies, there was a chance to catch up with old friends, make new ones and to enjoy the entertainment and even try singing along to old Vera Lynne favourites and carols.  

But last year along came Covid-19 and we could not hold the usual tea party.  And again this year we shall not be holding a party.  This is due to uncertainty in what Covid regulations might apply and also to a fall-off in demand for such events from the town's seniors.

The Rotary Club was saddend that there was no party this year but wishes all the seniors of Witham a Happy  and much improved 2022.
