Leigh-on-Sea Town Council were delighted to host a Jubilee themed Afternoon Tea as part of their Over 60’s Social Club on Wednesday 1st June.
The Council were lucky to receive funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to put towards catering, entertainment and decorations. The event was just £2 to attend with funds going directly towards newly appointed Council Chairman, Cllr Keith Evans, Chairman’s Charity.
Sixty retirees joined in the fun, with a musical performance from The Ray Miso Trio plus a delicious afternoon tea of sandwiches and scones, topped off with a Jubilee cake from the Homemade Bakery in Leigh.
There was lots of flag waving and a sing-a-long and the members had a wonderful time, with one commenting, “we have just returned from the Leigh Community Centre Jubilee Afternoon Tea Celebration, we would like to say what a wonderful time we had and a big thank you to all the hard-working people who made this a wonderful time.”
The Council wishes to thank all it’s volunteers who came and helped at the event. ‘
The Over 60’s Social Club runs on the first and third Wednesday of the month from 12pm – 1.30pm at Leigh Community Centre. The next session is on Wednesday 15th June.
