Mayor of Merton celebrates Silver Sunday

The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Brenda Fraser spent last week visiting care homes, day centres and lunch clubs across the borough, to mark Silver Sunday; a national celebration of older people and their contributions to our community.

Last Wednesday (5 October), the Mayor hosted afternoon tea in the Mayor’s Parlour for a group of residents who live in local care homes.

The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Brenda Fraser, said: “It was wonderful to tour the borough and meet some of the people who have made such a valuable contribution to life in Merton. I was delighted to host afternoon tea in the parlour as part of the celebration. The whole experience allowed me the opportunity to meet older people from all over the borough and hear their stories.”
