Older residents from retirement living schemes in north Kirklees enjoyed a harvest feast this week, while raising money for their social fund.
Tenants from Oxford Grange in Gomersal, Syke Fold Grange in Cleckheaton and Walker Street in Thornhill Lees tucked into a three course dinner prepared and served by staff from our older people’s service.
Les Halstead took first prize for his Worzel Gummidge costume
They all entered into the spirit of the season, with Les Halstead from Oxford Grange taking first prize in a fancy dress contest, while his neighbor, Molly Jackson, took the top award for her scarecrow hat.
As well as a lovely meal, tenants and visitors also enjoyed a variety of stalls, the proceeds of which helped raise over £200 for the granges’ social funds.
