The Silver Service Club, a club for people over 55 years, has been running with various programmes and with various leaders since 1976. As its name suggests, it tries to do everything well and to a high standard.
The club is provided as part of the Hadleigh Salvation Army’s service to the community, presenting a programme of varied entertainment and the offer of friendship, fun and laughter.
Members receive a small gift and a card on their birthday, a Christmas luncheon and a gift, and when sick or in hospital, a visit to them is attempted.
Understandably, there is a spiritual (religious) influence and aspect to its programme, For instance, entertainers are required to adhere to an acceptable standard suitable for church presentation.
