PENSIONERS at Beauvale Court Day Centre in Eastwood enjoyed a belated Royal wedding party.

There was a buffet, singing, a fancy hat competition for the best crown and traditional games like pass the parcel.

Every member was given a Royal wedding bell and a slice of wedding cake.

Vicky Swinscoe runs the group from the Scalby Close Community Centre.

She said: “It was an absolutely excellent day. Wonderful.

“We were closed for the Royal wedding because it was a Bank Holiday and they all really wanted to do something so I did a party in the garden and invited people over from a day centre in Selston.”

The centre used to be based at Beauvale Court until it was closed down.

It is open for the over 60s Mondays and Fridays from 9am until 4.30pm.
