Residents enjoy themselves at fifth annual Seniors’ Tea

Seniors from every corner of the Island turned out in droves last Sunday for the fifth annual Seniors' Tea, put on by Shadow Minister Michael Weeks, his lovely wife Cindy and the hard-working executive of Pembroke East Central, Constituency 16.

Despite the unseasonably cold and rainy weather, senior's came out in droves.

They were greeted upon arrival by a fabulous African-themed decorated hall at the Victor Scott School auditorium, inclusive of flowers made by the students of the school and their art teacher.

There was standing room only at the affair. It began with an opening prayer, after which Mr Weeks gave a stirring welcome.

Then, the long awaited ‘tea' was officially served. Fancy teapots, teacups and finger foods galore were served at the same time to the delight of all present.

There was a never-ending array of tasty delights.

As people enjoyed the fare they were treated to the heartwarming sounds of the Victor Scott School Band and Choir under the direction of the music teacher Mr Francis. Serenades were then enjoyed by songbird extraordinaire Howard Outerbridge Sr.

The seniors were also mesmerised by the picturesque line dances of Juanita Alchin and her group.

Still to come were the enchanting dances of the Youth Liturgical group of the House of Prayer Church on Marsh Folly Road.

These young people gracefully danced in their royal purple wears, rendering a superb performance.

Especially honoured was June Hayward who was celebrating her 81st birthday. She was held up with a spirited Happy Birthday song and given a crown to boot. Also celebrated were seniors with anniversaries falling in June.

Sincere gratitude was voiced by the attendees to Mr Weeks, his wife, and the executive members of his constituency.

Special thanks were also be given to Valerie Williams, principal and Theresa Sinclair, the office assistant at the Victor Scott School.
