Sherwood Centre, Forest Town
At a special event on Friday 23rd January at the Sherwood Centre, Stuart Avenue, Forest Town members of the Centre enjoyed a tea provided by volunteers from the Forest Town Community Cafe, (based at Forest Town Methodist Church).

The tea was followed by entertainment, which included monologues, such as ‘Albert and the Lion’ by Rev. Bob Jones. Charlotte Folkes sang songs from the musicals – some of which everyone were soon singing along to. In a different mode Colin House sang ‘ I know an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly,’ and Christine Cawthorne had everyone guessing with a ‘who said that’ quiz. The final entertainment event of the evening was Nick Harding and his sons playing a musical ensemble on trumpets and trombone.
A vote of thanks was given to the Forest Town Cafe ladies and the entertainers “for a wonderful evening” by Chairman Geoff Piggin.
Before they departed for home members of the centre couldn’t resist a couple of games of Bingo!
