The 1940s themed event included lunch,street party and wartime sing-along.

David Rushby, volunteer coordinator, said: “Everyone really enjoyed it. It was just something a bit different.

“We sang all the old 
favourites like Land of Hope and Glory and We’ll Meet Again. Everyone always says a lot of the other lunch clubs are very bland compared to ours as we do a lot of events. We are also having a 1940s day in June for the Walkley Festival.”

Friday Folk provides a cooked meal and chance to socialise for the over-60s.
