The centre of attention
Party to celebrate new garden furniture and a new lease of life at Manor Farm
IT was party time at Manor Farm Centre in Egham to thank people who raised money for new garden furniture.
The centre, which is run and managed by Runnymede Borough Council, has been transformed in time for summer thanks to Tesco and the Over 60s Club, an independent group that holds its weekly meeting at the centre.
The party was held on Thursday May 5 in recognition of the effort both parties played in helping to raise the money.
Staff from Tesco took part in a sponsored slim while the Over 60s Club donated cash towards the furniture.
Tesco also provided freshments for the party.
Penny Shields, the borough council’s supported living manager, said: “We would like to thank Tesco and the Over 60s Club for their part in helping to raise funds to improve the garden.
“We are thankful for the way the community has joined together to make a real difference to all residents who visit the centre. re- “A great day was had by all and we look forward to enjoying many a social day in the new garden.”
Manor Farm Centre offers a range of services for older people, including a number of weekly social activities, a set daily meal and hairdressing. A chaperone service is available for first-time visitors.
The centre is also available for hire.
The Manor Farm Centre celebration was also a leaving party for Amanda Smith.
