High tea and Easter bonnets for Bexleyheath keep fit pensioners
A GROUP of elderly keep-fit enthusiasts in Bexleyheath allowed themselves a few sugary treats at a fundraising high tea.
Close to 60 members of the Crook Loggers keep fit club for pensioners and the disabled met at St John Vianney Church in Heathfield Road last Wednesday.
Participants enjoyed hot cross buns, sandwiches and cakes, with many took part in a keenly-contested Easter bonnet-making competition.
It was won by John Mahoney, who used flowers from his own garden to decorate his hat.
Bexleyheath and Crayford MP David Evennett and mayor of Bexley Councillor Alan Downing also joined in the fun.
The event raised £270 to help the Crook Loggers fund group outings.
They meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week at the church in Heathfield Road, where two instructors put members through their paces with activities such as line dancing.
Organiser Sarah Williams said: “It went fantastically well and we had so many good comments.
“Everyone just entered into the community spirit of it.
“A lot of hard work went in but because everyone enjoyed it, it was all worth it.”
