The Mayor of the Borough of Bracknell Forest, Councillor Ash Merry, stepped into the role of bingo caller for the day to celebrate Older Persons day at Bracknell Shopmobility.

The free event had been organised by Older People’s Champion, Councillor Moira Gaw, along with the team at Bracknell Shopmobility.

Prizes had been donated by Waitrose, Hotel Chocolat, Whittards, Keep Mobile, Brown Bag, Marks and Spencer, The Old Manor, Coffee Barker, Kaspas and Tesco Martins Heron among others.

The Mayor said:

“Bingo is such a sociable game and it was so lovely to see everyone enjoying themselves. I want to thank everyone who came to the event and joined in to make it the great success it was, including all the businesses who sponsored the event. It was a fun way to acknowledge and appreciate the contributions and achievements of older people.”
