Potters Bar’s older residents enjoyed a celebratory cream teas event thanks to a borough council funding boost.

The council gave Hertsmere clubs and organisations the opportunity to claim grants of up to £300 to enable them to host events to mark Older People’s Day and Silver Sunday, both on October 1.

As a result, a dozen events took place, ranging from coach trips to tea mornings all geared to praise the achievements and contributions of the older generation.

Among those was Potters Bar’s Sixty Plus club’s cream tea event at Van Hage Garden Centre in Ware, which involved the residents being taken by coach to enjoy the day.

Hilary Shade, head of partnerships and community engagement, said: “There have been such wonderful and unique ideas for events and it’s great that we can help make these happen.

“These events help give older residents of Hertsmere the chance to get together with new and old friends and have a wonderful time.”
