Redbridge Pensioners’ Forum gathered at St Andrews Church, Ilford, for a day of celebration at their annual autumn tea party.

Speaker’s secretary of the club, Chitra De Silva, said the event was a great success.

“About 75 or 80 people came. Everyone enjoyed themselves and most people got up and had a dance” she told the Recorder.

As well as music and dancing, there was a selection of hot drinks, cakes and sandwiches on offer.

Chitra sadi: “The food was very good. After everyone had their share we took the rest of it round to the members. There were no leftovers anyway!”

The forum holds meetings twice a month at Redbridge Central Library and hosts regular events for the over 65s.

As for the rest of 2018, the forum has a turkey and tinsel holiday and an end of year party to look forward to.
