Lord's hosts Silver Sunday event

Lord's hosts Silver Sunday event

More than 220 members of the local community visited Lord's for Silver Sunday on 1 October, an event which included a Tour and Afternoon Tea.

Wet weather prevented an intergenerational cricket match that usually takes place on the Nursery Ground, but nonetheless the day still proved to be a success with a number of activities across the Ground. 

Joined by Lord Mayor of Westminster Cllr Ian Adams and Cllr Heather Acton, the Tour of the Ground saw local residents visit the Lord's Pavilion and J.P. Morgan Centre while the other highlight of the day was the Afternoon Tea featuring a selection of sandwiches, scones and cake. 

To help the day run smoothly, MCC staff Lord's volunteers, MCC Members and Lord's Outfielders (match day volunteers) were on hand to organise the event. 

Silver Sunday is an annual day of fun and free activities for older people across the UK.

Led by The Sir Simon Milton Foundation, it celebrates the value and knowledge they contribute to our communities while combating loneliness and isolation

This is the fifth consecutive year where Lord's has hosted a Silver Sunday event.
