The Rotary Club of Maidenhead held their annual Spring Tea Party for the elderly at the St John Ambulance Hall on Sunday 24th April, which once again proved to be a popular and successful occasion. After a glass of sherry the 60 guests were formally welcomed by President Tony Lodge who introduced them to the Deputy Mayor Sayonara Luxton, who had kindly attended. She made a short speech during which she thanked the Rotarians for the good work they do in the local community.
Entertainment was provided by The Gaslights whose members sang numerous old time Music Hall songs, appropriately dressed in costumes of that era. Many of the guests were delighted to sing along to some of the songs remembered from their youth. The entertainment continued whilst the Rotarians served a tasty tea of home made sandwiches and cakes, together with jellies and ice cream, cups of tea or soft drinks all prepared by the wives of the Rotary members.
