Lady Arnold DL reading the citation for Private George Cartwright VC ED at Sloane Square, 21st September 2018

Lady Arnold chaired the most amazing community tea where over 350 vulnerable elderly residents were entertained with the theme of “Vote 100 – Votes for women”

Everyone had a great time and this was entirely organised by volunteers from across the community,  all the voluntary organisations were invited to nominate guests and bring cakes and bakes.

There was a great turnout and a tremendous good humour of the whole event, entertained by the Choir from the Police and the local school children
