A POPULAR lunch club held a special event in honour of the Queen’s jubilee.
The Doorways Club, which meets every week at St Paul’s Church, Corbins Lane, hosted a jubilee lunch for elderly people on Tuesday .
Carole Marshall, lay curate at the church and co-leader of Doorways, said: “It was terrific and went extremely well – the whole hall was packed out.
“We had designed the event as a jubilee tea party and it was based on the 1950s. We meet every week and normally get about 20 to 25 people but we had 57 turn up as everyone was invited to bring a friend or a neighbour.”
The hall was decorated with flags, bunting and Jubilee memorabilia and helpers were dressed in the style of a ‘Nippy’, a waitress at Lion’s Corner Houses from the 1950s.
Quizzes and games were held in the adjacent room and tea was served all afternoon.
The Doorways Club meets every Tuesday at the church but held a special celebration ahead of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this weekend with homemade cakes and sandwiches.
