Saturday February 16 1pm – 5pm at Brockley Social Club Join us for our popular annual Midwinter Warmer: an afternoon for Brockley’s senior citizens featuring singing and dancing performances, afternoon tea (cake & sandwiches), and of course a good old natter!

Saturday 11 February, 2pm-5pm Brockley Social Club, 240 Brockley Road, SE4 2SU The cold and slightly snowy weather did not deter our attendees at the annual Seniors Mid-Winter Warmer on 11th February. We were beautifully regaled by the Senior’s Choir, led once again by Christine Bond, and there were plentiful refreshments; sandwiches and delicious home made cakes. Jennifer Owens delivered a very informative talk about Alzheimer’s awareness and shared ideas on how to befriend those in the community who are living with dementia. The raffle heralded the end of the afternoon; we are most grateful to the local businesses and individuals who donated such a variety of prizes such as chocolates and vouchers. This is always such a warm event and this year in particular we were happy to meet new volunteers who came along to help. If you would like to be part of the tea party next year, […]
