‘Silver Sunday’ was celebrated in style when members of Ambleside Kirkstone Rotary entertained over 50 older people, all of who live alone, to a splendid afternoon tea at the Kelsick Centre in Ambleside. This was followed by a light hearted cryptic quiz and a medley of popular songs from the shows, performed live by Gary Adams, director of Ambleside’s Theatre Voices.
Silver Sunday, launched in London seven years ago, has become a special day nationally to show how much older people are valued and to celebrate their contribution to the community. Since Ambleside’s first Silver Sunday four years ago, the popular event has become firmly established on club calendar and guests look forward to meeting up again with old friends and enjoying a convivial afternoon together.
