IT was a jolly affair at Porchester Hall in Bayswater on Christmas Day, as hundreds of elderly residents enjoyed a tasty three-course lunch. 

The free festive event, hosted by Everyone Active, who run Westminster’s leisure centres, was put on to make sure no one spent the special day alone. 

There was plenty of entertainment at the do, with carols, festive films and a raffle.

With 450 places available, priority was given to targeted groups including isolated older people and unpaid carers in the borough.
