• Coronation – Back to the 50s




    Age Concern Woking’s annual summer party was held on Sunday 26th June in the gardens of Westfield Social Club.

    The party, which had a ‘Coronation’ theme with food and music from the 1950s, was attended by over 100 clients, trustees and supporters. The weather was kind and the only sign of rain came just as the last of the six gazebos was being dismantled about 6pm.

    Coronation Chicken, strawberries and cream and trifle were amongst the party food served to the guests. Live music was supplied by local musician Graham Kirby-Smith, who sang a variety of evergreen songs and accompanied himself on keyboard. Sound equipment was hired from professional DJ, Ray Terry. Many local shops and individuals generously contributed raffle prizes.

    The excellent catering was organised by Ms Claire Cudmore with delicious food contributions from many Age Concern Woking volunteers. Along with Claire’s mother and friends several of our volunteers and all our staff members helped to serve the food and look after the older guests. The afternoon ended with a quiz about the 1950s.

    A very generous donation towards the cost of the party was received from Grosvenor Billinghurst.

    Age Concern Woking would like to sincerely thank everyone for the contributions and support which helped to make this such a successful and memorable day for our guests (companies who contributed listed below).

    We would especially like to offer our grateful thanks to Westfield Club for allowing us use of their refurbished premises free of charge over the past three years. Also for the help, co-operation and friendliness of the staff and committee.
