Llanelli Rotary Club members stage a right Royal tea party to mark The Queen’s 90th
Members of Llanelli Rotary Club staged a right Royal tea party to mark The Queen’s 90th.
The event was held at Furnace Community Hall and attended by many Llanelli people who share The Queen’s 90th birthday year.
“The Queen’s Tea was a marvellous celebration,” said Llanelli Rotary Club President Susan Roberts.
“Rotarians joined with members of the community who are celebrating their 90th birthday this year.
“We liased with Llanelli residential homes, care services and the community at large to get as many 90-year-olds as possible at the tea.
“Some had to attend with their carers and some needed transport help to attend. But Rotarians rallied to the cause and helped create a memorable occasion which was hugely enjoyed by one and all.
“We had a magician and entertainer on duty to keep the party spirit going and we had a great trip down memory land with songs from the past from a troupe led by Maxine Walters.
“We also had a special Queen’s birthday cake gifted to us by the team at the Jenkins Bakery.
“The tea party was put together by a hard-working team of Rotarians who were a great advert for the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.
“The afternoon was such a huge success that we are thinking of making it an annual event.
“My grateful thanks go to everyone who attended and all the carers and helpers and ‘entertainers’ who made it all happen.”
