A SPORTS club celebrated its centenary year with a traditional May Day procession and a summer fête.
The Brentham Club, in Meadvale Road, Ealing, opened for the residents of the Brentham Estate, one of the earliest social housing estates in the country, on May 27, 1911. And 100 years later it is still going strong.
The celebrations started at 11am last Saturday (14) with food and drinks stalls, a tug of war, and a children's disco while non-members were invited to try out the club's sports including tennis and bowls.
Up to 150 girls and boys, aged four to 13, dressed in white and walked around the estate followed by a brass band, before returning to the club to dance around the maypole.
It is one of two last remaining annual May Day processions in London, with the other being in Bromley.
Club secretary Colin Hearn said: "It was a huge success. A record number of people came to the event, around 2,000. It didn't rain which we expected and everybody had a great time.
"We had a traditional May Day which we've been doing for 100 years. It was a brilliant, historic day in Brentham's history."
