Day centre guests enjoy a right old Cockney knees up in Welwyn Garden City
COCKNEY royalty have been entertaining guests at a day centre and rolling back the years for many in the process.
Douglas Tilbe House, in Hall Grove, WGC, played host to a Cockney Pearly King and Queen, much to the amusement of the 70 elderly attendees.
The duo sung traditional songs and wore trademark button-bedecked outfits, and were joined in fancy dress by staff and volunteers as part of the Age UK Hertfordshire centre’s themed celebrations.
Visitors were given Union flags, which they waved merrily as they sang along and had a lunch of seafood with bread and butter, pie and mash and spotted dick.
Buses, provided by Welwyn Hatfield Council, then transported the guests back home.
