Brockley’s senior citizens gathered for another very successful Mid Winter Warmer on Saturday 10th February, and it was great to see so many people on the day. We were entertained by Chris and the Seniors Choir who led a really enjoyable sing-along. Monica Larking and her and her fantastic group of young Irish dancers from the Carragher Academy were superb, and story-teller Professor Jones delivered an intriguing account of a 1940s Vaudeville performer who helped save many during an air raid on Peckham Rye during World War 2.
Rachel Mooney and Phil Hall gave a fascinating presentation of their historical photos of Hilly Fields, and the afternoon rounded off with the ever-popular raffle, with a prize for everyone. All accompanied by plentiful rounds of sandwiches, cakes and cups of tea in a very warm and friendly atmosphere.
We thank the Brockley Social Club for hosting us, the Rotary club for kindly donating funds once again, local businesses who donated some fabulous raffle prizes, and all the volunteers who gave up their time. There are too many to name individually but please be assured that we are hugely grateful for your generosity and support.
Most importantly it was great to see so many of our regular and new attendees and we really look forward to welcoming everyone next year!
