Twickenham’s RFU Stadium was full of fun, laughter, dancing and life last week as over 1,000 older residents turned out for the annual fair to combat isolation and loneliness.

80 stallholders delivered a wide range of activities, information and advice throughout the day for those who braved the weather to turn out for the fair.

Among the favourites were a crime prevention workshop delivered by Metropolitan Police, lively band and choir performances, dancing, arts and crafts sessions, and a relaxing meditation class.

Cllr Piers Allen, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Services and Health said: “How wonderful it was to see so many of our older residents join us last week. The RFU Stadium was definitely full of life as attendees enjoyed vibrant activities, lively information sessions and a good old cuppa tea and a chat.

“Thank you to all the organisations who hosted stalls and activities or who donated items to help make the day go so well.”
