Later on, Age UK West Sussex opened their doors to more than sixty people, for a tea party and entertainment.

Councillor Alastair McPherson said: “It was a fantastic day and we are planning another one in 2018.”

Silver Sunday is in the national calendar and is a time for everyone to pause and think about older people and their contribution to society.

Groups were able to apply to Mid Sussex District Council for a small grant of £250 towards activities that provide an opportunity for older people to get together, try something new and have an uplifting day.
