Live entertainment was provided by “SOUP,a local ukulele band, who drew a crowd, playing some of their most amusing and memorable tunes.

Ruth Winston Centre Manager Yvonne Quigley says: “It was a fantastic day! We welcomed in so many people who had never been around the centre so for us to show it off and allow them to explore was a treat. They discovered something new for themselves either through an exercise or dance class, art or craft, computer course or interest group -  we’ve got it all, including subsidised services with our resident hairdresser and visiting chiropodists. We endorse the preventative agenda in keeping the over 50s active, independent and involved.”

For more information on the activities and services at the Ruth Winston Centre go to or call 020 8886 5346 and talk to a member of staff or a volunteer who will be able to tell you all about the classes and clubs that take place during the week.
