Seniors offered tea with spoonful of creativity

Older members of the community were treated to a social morning of cakes and creativity on Friday at Christian Outreach Centre.

Residents of the Laura Johnson Home and other seniors attended the bi-monthly morning tea with jewellery making, nail painting, singing and a visit from Bluey the bear.

Leader Nicole Pyke said the centre hosts the event to bless the seniors of our city, and give them a fun time.

“They just love it, they come down and have such a wonderful time that they don’t want to leave,” Ms Pyke said.

“We like to have enough volunteers so everyone has a friend,” she said.

Bluey was a highlight for many, leading everyone in a cheeky song and dance.

The next morning tea for seniors is on Friday May 19 at 10 Enterprise Road.
