Lancaster and Morecambe war veterans enjoy tea party at Salt Ayre
War veterans from across the Lancaster district enjoyed a tea party held at Salt Ayre leisure centre.
D-Day hero John Bracewell, who lives in Morecambe and has previously featured in the Lancaster Guardian and The Visitor, was among those who attended the event on Thursday, along with his daughter Lynne Shelling.
They and other guests were entertained by local jazz singer Harri Deane, as well as enjoying afternoon tea.
The event was organised by Age UK Lancashire.
Lancashire Older Veterans team leader Christine Mottley said: “It’s a celebration of veterans living in the locality, just coming together over a scone and a cup of tea and sharing camaraderie.
“We have a lot of vulnerable older people in Lancaster and this is an opportunity for them to come together and meet other people.”
The event also included experts giving information and practical advice.
