Over 1,200 residents and carers attended the Council’s annual Full of Life celebration for older residents in the borough on Friday 7 October.
Residents had a chance to try out a number of activities including Bollywood dancing, arts and crafts and digital demonstrations as well as juice tasting during the day-long event held at the RFU (Twickenham Stadium).
Over 75 stalls attended this year including Neal’s Yard Remedies, SilverFit, London Fire Brigade, and a number of day centres, offering useful advice, information and freebies to attendees.
Celebrity guest, Wayne Sleep, attended the fair and a tea dance was held in the afternoon along with digital drop-in sessions.
The event was free to attend with complimentary tea, coffee, cakes and lunch for guests.
A big thank you to the volunteers from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and the Council who were indispensable and helped ensure the day ran smoothly. And to all the groups and organisations, who attended making the day a huge success.
The event was kindly supported by Veolia, Marks and Spencer, Bluebird Care and the RFU.
We would also like to give a big thank you to the companies who supplied cakes for the Café, goody bag gifts and prizes for the prize draw.
