Staff reporter

Elderly guests enjoyed an old time music hall sing-along at a spring tea party laid on for them by the Rotary Club of Maidenhead.

Sixty pensioners attended the party at the St John Ambulance Hall, off York Road, on Sunday.

After a glass of sherry they were formally welcomed by president Tony Lodge and special guest deputy mayor Cllr Sayonara Luxton, who thanked the Rotarians for the good work they do in the community.

Entertainment was provided by The Gaslights who, dressed in old time music hall costumes, encouraged the guests to sing along to songs they remembered from their youth. 

Tea was a tasty selection of homemade sandwiches, cakes, jelly and ice cream, prepared by the wives of Rotarians.

President Tony said: “The tea party was the first of three events the club organises each year for the elderly in Maidenhead, many of whom who do not have much chance to get out on their own. Once again it proved to be a popular and successful occasion.”

The other two events are a boat trip on the River Thames in the summer and a Christmas Dinner.
