A newly formed Bexley film club held a launch event on June 5, for senior citizens.

The musical Carousel was shown as the first film for the Slade Green Seniors Film Club and The Glenn Miller Story was chosen for a future screening.

A tea and cake get-together before the film provided the opportunity to introduce the deputy mayor elect Cllr John Davey, Cllr Stefan Borella, Rev Jim Bennet of St Augustine’s Church and Pastor Kevin McLaren of the Elm Road Christian Fellowship Church, together with PCSO Mark Piggott.

Funding for the event was provided by Orbit Homes.

Staff and volunteers at the community centre set up the tea and provided refreshments.

Morrisons also donated some cakes for the day.

The film club will be held at the Slade Green and Howbury Community Centre in Chrome Road, Slade Green, on the first Tuesday of the month, at 12.30pm. For information contact the centre on 01322 336755.
