Singing care workers save the day after ukelele band fails to arrive at Seaton Rotary Club Senior Citizens’ Cream Tea
When a ukulele band were unable to turn up at this year’s Senior Citizens’ Cream Tea Party hosted by the Seaton Rotary Club, the afternoon could have ended on a disappointing note.
But instead, two local care home workers entertained the 80-strong gathering at Colyford Memorial Hall on Wednesday June 13 with a medley of singalong-style songs.
Seaton Rotarian Les Andrews said Vaida Berg and Lisa Joiner saved the day.
“We were at a loss when the band couldn’t make it, but those two were marvellous,” he said. “They just got up on stage and did their thing, all the good old songs, ‘Roll Out The Barrel’, ‘Show Me The Way to Go Home’, that sort of thing.”
It later turned out that a member of the ukulele band had been taken ill.
The Seaton Rotarians have been hosting the annual cream teas, aimed particularly at elderly people with mobility problems, for 35 years.
