Old Oak Community Centre Celebrate International Older People’s Day

November 4, 2015 in News by Old Oak Centre

Staff at Old Oak Community & Children’s Centre had a great time hosting our International Older People’s Day event on Friday 9th October where we held a glamorous High Tea Event.

Our hall was transformed with a delightful purple and mauve colour scheme, crisp white table cloths and white chair covers complete with purple bows. Staff made delectable sandwiches and delicious cakes with teas and coffees.

Guests were entertained by a performance from the 50 strong Old Oak Primary Choir.  They sang an ecletic range of hits, including Stevie Wonder’s ‘Isn’t She Lovely’.

Guest and Old Oak resident Jean Insley said, “Everyone had a really good time, it was lovely to hear the children sing and Carol’s cakes were delicious. It was faultless”.

Andrew Kimmance, Director of Old Oak Housing, gave a short speech, describing how valuable the experience of the older community is and how wonderful it was to see so many of them at the Centre to celebrate.

A big thank you to everybody who came and the staff’s team effort.  We look forward to the next event!
