Kidsgrove Pensioners Jingle all the way
On Thursday 29th November, Kidsgrove Pensioners were treated to a Christmas Party. The event which is held at Kidsgrove Town Hall is run by the Kidsgrove District Pensioners Association. The event attracts up to 90 pensioners and civic guests from across the town and has become more popular each year. The afternoon is packed full of entertainment, Christmas dinners and fundraising activities.
Barbara Whalley who chairs the association also carries out secretarial work for the group. The glitzy pensioner said:
“I have been doing this for years now and I love that we are getting these old people out of their bungalows and homes to come and have some fun. It’s always been important to me to make sure our local pensioners have somewhere to go and someone to talk to. We get together all year round but our Christmas Lunch and Party is always the best.”
The residents were treated to a 4 course meal with vegetable soup to start with, Turkey and trimmings for the main, desert was a choice of apple and mince-pie or trifle and a cheese board to finish.
The entertainment was run by an Elvis tribute artist who regularly attends the pensioner parties and who also came to the pensioner diamond jubilee event. The Mayor, Deputy, Councillors and Kidsgrove Town Council staff thoroughly enjoyed the show and even got up to have a dance.
After all these super Christmas dinners in the town it’s a wonder my waistline hasn’t expanded!
