On Wednesday, July 26 members of the Newham branch of the NHS Retirement Fellowship had a party in Newham University Hospital to celebrate the anniversary of the social club being founded.

Members of the fellowship, which is a national organisation with local branches, brought in old photos from their time working with the NHS and met up with friends for food and a chat.

NHS Retirement Fellowship member Beverley Lawrence, 71, said: “We are all older people trying to get out and do things. We are basically a social group.”

The social club, which has around 70 members, regularly organises meetings and trips for its members and earlier this summer they went to Brighton for the day.
