In that rain the pensioners came in their droves to the Festival for Over Fifties at the Goan Community centre next to the Maya Angelou Centre next to the Keston Community Centre behind the Downhills Park Cafe. It was chuckin’ it down today.
A jolly good time was had by all with dancing of all types to see performed by Candy’s troupe all doing belly dancing, clog-dancing, African Dance etc and all over 55.
Up Your Street was there dishing out free bags, perfumed soaps and all sorts to jolly along the day. Because ……. ….. it!”
It’s on until 5pm so you can catch it but you missed the generous dinner.
There too were The Friends of Downhills Park who had a petition to bring back staff into the park as it’s going downhill. And gathering herbs in the rain was the cook of Downills Park Cafe!
