  • Face painting
  • Music
  • Manager in the wooden stocks
  • Tombola and more!

All money raised will go towards the residents' social fund to ensure they can enjoy a variety of activities, events and day trips.Jason Cox, Mears Care Manager said: “The biggest challenge in our community is social isolation and we felt that organising a day that everyone could enjoy would be a fantastic way to bring people together."The day is planned for all ages, although we know that isolation and loneliness is a particular issue for older people, it’s really important to us and the local community to encourage inter-generational interaction. We hope it will be a great success and become an annual event.”To find out further information please contact Jason Cox on 020 8316 8668 or email
