Towcester Evening WI performed its last Diamond Jubilee duty this week after they helped put on an afternoon of tea and cakes for over 100 senior citizens at a shelter housing scheme.
On Monday the Rotary Club and Age Concern and the WI brought together 110 seniors from all over Towcester and the surrounding villages for an afternoon with a magician and community singing.
WI spokesman Sue Hamilton said: “The cakes were piled high but not a crumb was left!”
Rotarian and party compare Conrad Dower said there were senior citizens from all over Towcester and from up to eight villages. He said : “There are an awful lot of people who have become recluse through no fault of their own as carers, or infirm. This was a way of making sure they were including in the Jubilee.”
