My Pearly friend Lorraine Sadler organised a smashing event in The Carpenters Arms Public house to help raise funds for the British Legion.

I was delighted to be asked to attend and a real pleasure to meet the local Londoners and also the Chelsea Pensioners.

Johnny Day supplied great music and Lorraine, her family and friends supplied fantastic food a real Pearly treat of course with Jellied Eels and Cockles in abundance.

One of the highlights for me personally was to witness 4 generations of an original Pearly family together at one event they were Lorraine’s Pearly Queen mum Pat, Lorraine, her daughter and grandaughter.

We all had a fantastic time sharing our history and having a good old singalong and knees up.

A big thank you to Lorraine and all involved for organising a fantastic event.
