The Robert Hall Centre in Wisbech was decked out with union jacks today as a 1940s tea party was held in aid of Dementia Awareness Week.

The party, organised by the Alzheimer’s Society, was thrown for people with dementia and their carers. Also in attendance were the new Mayor and Mayoress of Wisbech, Councillor David Hodgson and his wife Judy.

Entertainment was provided by 1940s singer Lula May, who appeared in TV series Landgirls, and guests tucked in to a street party style lunch.
