More than 20 elderly people that attend Borehamwood Seniors Club, which is run by our Crossroads Care Service, enjoyed a Crazy Hats themed tea-party with live music, on October 5th.
They enjoyed music from The Woodmen, a Borehamwood based folk band, who performed songs such as Living Doll and Let’s Twist Again. Then were treated to an afternoon-tea style lunch with sandwiches, quiche, cakes and more.
Borehamwood Seniors Club provides a safe, friendly place for senior citizens from Elstree and Borehamwood to come together to socialise, have lunch and take part in activities such as armchair exercise, crafts or games.
The Club runs out of Fountain Court care home in Borehamwood, Monday to Friday. Each day up to 20 pensioners attend, many of whom live alone or in sheltered accommodation.
Ria Lepley, Club Manager, explained that the event was held as part of Older Peoples' Week (Oct 1st - 7th). She said: “Everyone appeared to have enjoyed themselves and loved participating in the event, making the hats and some of the bunting. They enjoyed socialising with other members of the Club that they don’t often see. It was a lovely day for all. We are grateful to Hertsmere Borough Council for providing the funding that made the event possible. “
Joyce, who has been attending the Club for four years, said: “It was a lovely event. I enjoy coming to Borehamwood Seniors Club as I would be on my own otherwise.”
Leslie, who lost his wife in 2013 and lives alone, said: “I love the Club, I’ve met some lovely people, they are so friendly. Without the Club I would be at home with nobody to talk to.”
