Tewkesbury Rotary Club hold an annual Senior Citizens Tea Party at the Watson Hall in
Tewkesbury. This year the event on Saturday 22 nd February, was attended by over 90 Senior
Citizens from the Tewkesbury and District areas who had a fantastic time. They met up with
old friends, had a very substantial afternoon tea provided by the Rotary Club and local
businesses, were entertained by the Gloucester Singers Ukulele Band, took part in a few
games of Bingo with the afternoon finishing with a raffle, with all the prizes being donated.
This event is only possible with the kindness and generosity of others and costs the Senior Citizens nothing, as transport can be provided as well. For many it is a very memorable event, especially during the dull and cold winter months. This year the event could have been in jeopardy with the recent flooding in the town and surrounding areas, but luckily the water did recede sufficiently so all the roads were open to enable easy access to the Town centre and the Watson Hall.
Tewkesbury Rotary Club is very appreciative of the grant received from Tewkesbury Town Council for the use of the Watson Hall, which is an ideal location in Tewkesbury. Without this grant, the annual Tea Party may not take place. The Rotary Club would also like to thank Cotteswold Dairy, Drapers Bakery and the Mythe Nursey for all their support for the Tea Party.
