We were delighted to once again be able to hold our Annual Silver Sunday Celebration in person.
Initially launched as a local campaign to tackle loneliness and isolation, Silver Sunday is now a national event in October where people can come together for a free activity and enjoy each other’s company.
Following last year’s event, when due to Covid restrictions we were restricted to delivering our ‘Afternoon Tea ‘t Door’, it was lovely to see those who live alone able to sit and chat with their friends and neighbours and enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea of sandwiches, cakes, cream scones etc.
This year those attending were entertained by Rachel Mercer, a professional singer with a stunning voice and vibrant personality whose versatile repertoire ranged from classical ballads and 1940’s to 60’s songs to light opera.
