The centre is a great meeting point for the retired community in Bermondsey and Paul and I were once again delighted to enjoy their Christmas festivities, which included a sumptuous lunch prepared by Yalding's chef, Ken, all presided over by the centre mananger, Katrina.
Also included in the guest list was the Mayor of Southwark, Cllr Kath Whittam, sporting a Christmas jumper, as part of Save the Children's Christmas jumper day.
On our table two ladies told me how they had been married at St James's. One had just celebrated 50 years of marriage, and the other had been married for 66 years to her husband.
That was something really to celebrate.
Meanwhile back at the church, it was the St James School Key Stage 1 Nativity and here are some photos of that event taken by Jos. Well done everyone
