CHRISTMAS spirit was in bountiful supply as more than 120 older people from the town’s central wards tucked into an early Christmas dinner.
 

They were invited to the Orford community hub for the four-course dinner at the end of a range of festive lunches organised by Warrington Borough Council’s wardens and central neighbourhood team.


Ward councillors and the Mayor of Warrington Clr Peter Carey were on hand to greet residents from Fairfield and Howley, Orford, Poplars and Hulme, Latchford East and Dallam and Bewsey.


They tucked into hotpot with bread and butter pudding for desert followed by entertainment including music and bingo.


All food for the events was donated and cooked by Asda and at the final event the supermarket sent a chef and staff to wait at the table. Asda also donated prizes for the Christmas raffle and bingo, including the top prize of a flat-screen TV won by Molly Glassey from Orford.


Clr Kate Hannon, executive board member for leisure, community and culture, said: “We’d like to thank Asda for their huge contribution to these events. Asda's community liaison worker Ella Healey has supported a large number of events throughout the year and this partnership has really helped some of our most vulnerable residents.


“And thanks also to the Asda workers, council staff and everyone else who helped make these lunches such lovely occasions.”

Did some of the old folk tell him about WWII when this country fought for a country that allowed free speech and where political leaders didn't use the police to silence dissent?
