Retirement residents celebrate together at annual event
The Mayor of Richmond joined our retirement scheme residents to celebrate our annual retirement party which took place at our Dean Road scheme.
Residents from across our 19 retirement schemes joined together to enjoy good food, good company and good dancing! The party began with a three course sit down meal and after the last of the dessert plates had been cleared the entertainment for the afternoon arrived. This was in the form of a singer and dancer who got everyone singing and swaying along together in no time. It was great to hear from James Darby House resident Rita who said: “This event is something I always really look forward to. It’s a great chance to see my friends all in one place as I find it difficult to get around to see them now as I’m not as mobile as I once was.”
The Mayor of Richmond said of her visit: “ (It was) Lovely to meet and chat to so many Borough Residents at this Retirement Celebration lunch.”
