At Letham Gardens, a sheltered housing development in Dunbar, tenants will be remembering absent friends over afternoon tea on 24 November.
Each of the guests will be given a piece of brightly coloured paper and will be asked to write down the name of an old friend, tenant or relative, who is no longer with us. These will be placed on a poster on the wall. It will evoke memories of the people, which often leads into stories of what life was like in the early days in Dunbar.
After an afternoon tea, an entertainer will play some music. After that, and another serving of tea, each name on the poster will be read out and people invited to recall and share a fond memory of the person. It is hoped the event will be both heart-warming and funny.
