A group of Over 60s were treated to a feast of activities, all-day refreshments and fun at September’s ‘Holiday at Home’ event at the Water Eaton Church Centre in Bletchley.

The event catering for close to 70 people, was arranged by members of Spurgeon Baptist Church and St Frideswide’s Water Eaton.

It was first inspired three years ago by parish nurse Jenny Davis.

This year's splashimng great theme was ‘Under the Sea’ and the centre was decorated with suspended models of a giant whale, shark, fishes, seaweed and jelly fishes, arranged around a shipwreck, a treasure chest, and sound effects.

Activities included a sing-a-long, a humorous but meaningful Jonah sketch, craft workshops, film shows, chair exercises, a nail bar and many other activities.

The group lunched on fish and chips, provided by CrossLinks, the community charity set up by the two churches.
